8/20/2013 New submission guidelines for FIRST FLIGHT
Hello Folks...Today, we are releasing new submission guidelines for Boomerang Theatre Company and our FIRST FLIGHT festival. We are posting them below. They will also be posted on our "Submit a Play" page later this week. Hopefully this clears up some of the questions people have about sending us their work, and also reduces the amount of paper we receive. Questions, feel free to send them to us. Thanks!
Boomerang Theatre Company welcomes submission of new plays to our FIRST FLIGHT New Play Festival.
FIRST FLIGHT provides rehearsal space, casting assistance and a public presentation to plays in development. We are especially interested in plays that deal with modern issues and questions, use theatricality in their presentation, and have a creative use of language. Submissions are not limited by subject matter, cast size, cast breakdown or setting requirements.
Each year, Boomerang has an open submission window from Aug 1st to Sept 15th in which to receive unsolicited script samples and materials. Please note: We now only accept submissions during this window. Submitting at other times will not be logged and read.
Unfortunately, what FIRST FLIGHT is not is a showcase in New York City for fully finished plays looking for production. No productions are guaranteed from participation in FF and there is no competition to win the festival.
Please submit 1) your resume, 2) a cover letter, 3) a synopsis of your play, and 4) a 10 page sample of the play. Note: this does not have to be the first 10 pages; merely the 10 pages that best represent the play and your writing.
Boomerang is no longer accepting submissions in hard copy. Please send materials electronically only.
Please submit materials to:
The Boomerang Theatre Company
Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
