Script Submission Policy
If you have written a play or musical that you feel is appropriate or may be of interest to New City Stage Company, please send the following:
• 1-2 page synopsis
• 5-10 page excerpt from the script
• a character breakdown
• bios for the playwright, composer, lyricist, and any other artistic collaborators
• Demo CD with tracks clearly labeled (musicals only)
Submissions should be sent to our administrative offices at:
New City Stage Company
2008 Chestnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103
Please do not send your materials to the theatre as we do not accept mail there.
Please DO NOT send the full script unsolicited. If, upon reading the synopsis package we find that your show is a good fit for New City, we will request a full script at that time. Responses will only be sent to submissions that include a self-addressed stamped envelope or postcard. Please allow up to 3 months for a review and response to your submission.
We place special emphasis on producing work that takes place in Philadelphia, is by a playwright that has Philadelphia connections, and world and regional premieres.
