Stage to Screen seeks full-length plays

web site

Deadline: December 31, 2020
Morgan Hill, CA

Calling all Playwrights! Do you have a masterpiece of a full-length play completed? Would you love to see it brought to life on both stage and screen?

Submit your play to our experienced judges by December 31, 2020

Any selected play will receive a $1000.00 award

Your play will go through an intensive 1 week “read-through” workshop before production begins.

Your play will be professionally staged as a high quality elevated workshop production

This production is filmed and screened for global audiences

Your new play is a hit

RTO Productions, in association with The Hive SJ, presents the following opportunity to revolutionize the way new plays are brought to mass audiences.

We are looking for unproduced plays to feature in our “Stage to Screen” series. These plays should have 6 or fewer actors, and no previous productions. The chosen play(s) will be produced as an elevated workshop production. Additionally, each production will be filmed and a trailer will be made available to the author as a means to assist in promoting the work. The play(s) chosen will be awarded a monetary prize of $1000.00.

Read through workshop:
This will consist of actors (who have read the play in advance) doing a timed read through of your play while you and the director confer either in person, or electronically. This will be done to AFTER the play has been chosen, and will assist us in all aspects of production.

All types of plays will be considered for production. If a musical is submitted, all music must be original, and you must have the rights for use free and clear. RTO Productions and The Hive SJ have a commitment to diversity and to honoring all traditions. As such, all scripts will be “blind read”, given to the readers with no indication of gender or ethnicity. Our one requirement is “Don’t bore us.”

Submit with no entry fee if submitted by December 31, 2020, 5:00 pm PST! If you submit your play after December 31st, there will be a submission fee of $25.00. 

Submission for consideration closes March 15th, 2021. 

Final production choice(s) will be announced on our website at http://stagetoscreen.org the first week of April 2021.

Submission requirements:
Via Email, submit the following:
  • A one page synopsis of your play
  • A character list and description – Due to space considerations, we would prefer a cast of no more than 6 players.
  • A short playwright bio (one or two paragraphs)*
  • The play in its entirety
*Please make this a separate document as we really are doing a blind reading.

NOTE: Scripts must be submitted in PDF format vis e-mail. You may also choose to submit a brief (no longer than one page) explanation of your vision or what you hope to accomplish from the writing and subsequent production of this play. No format other than PDF will be accepted.
