The Players Theatre is dedicated to helping original plays and musicals move onto an Off Broadway or New York run. While many shows move onto readings and festivals few move beyond this point. Through mentoring and a theatre subsidy this program is meant to help creative teams self produce their show. For next round proposals are due by September 1st 2019.
Proposals should Include:
- a brief description of play or musical
- estimated length or running time
⁃ number of actors and musicians
⁃ link to sample tracks (musicals only)
⁃ development history
⁃ creative team bios
- PDF of script/book
Applicants are responsible for producing their show. This would include, but is not limited to, hiring cast, stage manager, creative team, creative design and implementation, rehearsals and marketing. Players Theatre will assist on marketing and consult on production.
For a split of the box office Players Theatre provides theatre, lights and sound, technician and box office personnel.
If you are NOT from the New York area you will need to be prepared to be in New York at your own expense to produce your production.
