Open Call for Script Submissions

We are excited to announce that Monsoon Youth will be holding an open call for script/play submissions for our Spring 2023 production season! This is a unique opportunity for young people (up to age 18) to write their own play and potentially have it produced/performed for students from local schools during the Spring. If you or your student are interested in being our next resident-playwright, give it a go!

When writing, please keep the following guidelines and deadlines in mind:

  • The play’s run time should be approximately 15-30 minutes
  • The script should include 3-4 main characters plus an ensemble
  • The script’s message/theme must be relevant, meaningful, and appropriate for young audiences (Kindergarten-6th grade)

-IMPORTANT DATES-

January 15th: Optional Feedback Submission Deadline

 All scripts submitted by Jan. 15 will be reviewed and provided with feedback. Writers will then have the opportunity to apply any feedback and re-submit their script by the Feb. 15th deadline.

February 15th: FINAL Submission Deadline

March 1st: Winning script(s) announced

Staff will also host an open writing group that will meet weekly. Students who are interested in submitting a script but would like extra support can attend to receive coaching. Specific dates and times will be announced soon!

All questions, scripts, and script drafts can be sent to our Drama Director, Moon Thomas – moon@monsoonyouth.org.

Be sure to share the flyer with anyone who might be interested!
