The staged readings will have a director and cast assigned from our Vintage Theatre community.

Submission period will be February 1 - April 30.

  • Provide a biography and a resume.
  • Any style of comedy such as farce, satire, domestic, comedy of manners, comedy of ideas will be accepted. Ultimately, if it reads as a comedy, we will consider it. If it doesn't, we won't. Please be advised of this when you consider submitting.
  • The play may not have been previously produced.
  • Full-length plays only.
  • Musical comedies will be accepted.
