Script Submissions

There is no charge to playwrights whose work is selected for the BTS development process. All script submissions must meet the following criteria:

  • Completed, original work.
  • Appeals to a wide audience.
  • Deals with mainstream issues and themes relevant to current society and culture.

To submit your work, please send the following in MS Word or .PDF format to BTS Submissions:

  • One-page summary.
  • A paragraph describing your experience with the subject matter (e.g., if your script is set in a restaurant, briefly relate how many years you’ve worked in the restaurant industry, in what positions, how the restaurant you worked at was similar to the one in your script, et cetera).
  • First ten pages.
  • One scene from elsewhere in the work.
  • If a musical, three songs in .MP3 format along with lyric sheets.

Your submission constitutes permission for Broadway Theatre Studio and its members to perform your work in closed sessions for evaluation purposes. If submitting a musical that is selected for a workshop, you must be able to provide a rehearsal pianist/music director.
