One-third of CRT’s productions are new works, and every year CRT commissions a new show for its celebrated Young Audience Outreach Tour (YAOT). The goal of this program is to bring theatre to thousands of kids in rural and underserved communities throughout the Southwest while creating an exciting opportunity for emerging playwrights. Bilingual (English/Spanish) plays are preferred, but not required. With 35 years of successful productions we are looking for playwrights interested in working among a collaborative artistic team.

We are accepting submissions for the 2020 Young Audience Outreach Tour and if you would like to be considered for a commission, please, submit the following by September 1, 2019:

• Cover sheet with your name, contact info, and a synopsis
