The Growing Stage Theatre – The Children's Theatre of New Jersey
is now accepting submissions for our 2013-2014 New Play-Reading Festival!
This project is open to any unpublished and unproduced non-musical TYA scripts
to be considered as one of four plays to be featured in the New Play-Reading Festival this coming season
at The Growing Stage Theatre – The Children's Theatre of New Jersey.
The New Play-Reading
Festival is a wonderful opportunity for artists to have their unpublished
works presented before an audience, in a play-reading scenario, by a cast
consisting of both professional and amateur actors on two separate occasions
during our 2013/2014 season.
The Growing Stage is committed to creating and presenting professional
theatre for young people and their families and to provide them with the unique
and affordable opportunity to share a fun, culturally significant moment in an
intimate and special venue, The Historic Palace Theatre. Young people are also
given the opportunity to grow as performers by working alongside professional
actors as part of the theatre learning experience. Shows usually require a
minimum of 4 characters/performers; there is no maximum, provided that if
necessary, doubling is OK with the playwright.
The initial play readings will take place, one per day,
November 7 through 10. After the reading of each play, there will be a dialogue
among the audience, performers and playwright. The second set of readings will
take place, again, one per day, March 6 through 9. After the play readings in
March, one of the four scripts will then be selected to be presented as a
in The Growing Stage's 2014/2015
Main Stage season!!!
