JERSEY VOICES' Call For Original Scripts
The Chatham Community Players is seeking original, one-act plays, short musicals and/or original dance pieces, written by New Jersey authors, for Jersey Voices' 26th Annual Production.
Deadline March 8
It is once again time to be thinking about submitting one-acts for Jersey Voices 2020. This year’s deadline is March 8th, just a few months away!
So please put the finishing touches on those plays sitting on your desk/desktop and send them along. This year, like last year, we are only accepting submissions by e-mail to the address listed below.
We're accepting scripts this year by e-mail only to: JerseyVoices@ChathamPlayers.org
Play submissions of any genre (including short musical and dance pieces), style and length up to roughly 15 minutes running time will be accepted through March 8, 2020. Selected pieces will each be performed in our Black Box Theater in Chatham on the last weekend in July and first weekend in August.
If we've not chosen your work in the past, please don't give up on us. Each year we have produced new pieces by an author whose work we've passed over in the past; it usually has more to do with trying to balance 6 separate pieces for an enjoyable evening of theater than it has to do with the quality of the piece which has been passed over. In fact, under these circumstances, we have often held over a piece we've liked and given it consideration in the following year. Often these 'holdovers' have subsequently been chosen, produced, and favorably received.
We are looking forward to seeing your work this year and, as we know that many of you come to see Jersey Voices, to seeing you again this summer. If you have not already introduced yourself, when you're in the audience please stay for the reception we have after each performance and introduce yourself. We'd love to meet you.
If you have any questions, send an e-mail to JerseyVoices@ChathamPlayers.org.
