It’s that time of year, folks. As summer steams toward fall (I know, I know: let’s not rush it), the producers of New Ideas Festival 2012 are sending out the Call for Script Submissions. Deadline is September 15, 2011.
Two big changes this year:
– a $10 reading fee (per script) will be charged for submissions received from playwrights who are not members of Alumnae Theatre Company.
– scripts may be submitted electronically (in Word or pdf format) to NIFscripts@gmail.com. Snail mail or hand delivery (3 copies) still acceptable, of course.
Other than that, the usual criteria still apply: plays must run no longer than 45 minutes, and – most important – MUST NOT HAVE BEEN PREVIOUSLY PRODUCED. The festival is called “New Ideas”, after all. The whole point is that these shows will be world premieres.
