Deadline: June 1, 2020

Northern Kentucky University School of the Arts is calling for submissions for the 20th anniversary of our award-winning Year End Series Festival of New Plays - THE Y.E.S. FESTIVAL, running April 8-18, 2021.

Submissions will be accepted from Jan. 15 until June 1, 2020.

Two plays will be selected for performance in the festival.

The selected playwrights will each receive a cash prize of $400 and an expense-paid (travel and accommodations) visit to NKU to see their plays in production. Selected plays will receive a full production.

WHAT TO SUBMIT
  • Full-length plays and musicals are eligible. The author must fully own all rights.
  • No children’s theatre, one-acts, or reader’s theatre pieces will be considered.
  • Adaptations will only be considered if the adapted work is in the public domain.
  • Submissions may not have had a previous professional or university production.
  • In deciding what to submit, a writer should know the festival will be cast with undergraduate student actors. Submissions with larger casts are looked upon favorably in the selection process.
  • Scripts must be standard sized and legibly typed. Standard Dramatists Guild format is preferred.
  • Submissions (ONE per playwright) should include a one-page synopsis and a cast list with brief character descriptions.
  • For musicals, please also include libretto, a list of characters with vocal ranges, demo CD and samples of the score.
