Manchester Theatre Showcase Writer Opportunities

Written by NewLiveTheatre on . Posted in Blog


We are very pleased to announce that we are now open for script submissions for the Manchester Theatre Showcase 2014.

We have 6 great local, experienced directors (each operating their own theatre company) lined up to work with 6 emerging local Writers. Selections for the 3rd annual competition event will be made in March after the submission deadline, after which we and our Directors will get to work on transferring your play from words on a page to full life on the stage!

In May we will hold open auditions for the showcase to select the best actors for your play and we will work on developing a single scene from your play to showcase to a live, mixed industry-consumer audience who will vote on their favourite to win a full production with New Live Theatre. For the runner ups, we also promote your scripts to local companies who may wish to consider your script after the showcase.

If your play wins the showcase, you will receive a commission on ticket sales for the resultant production of your full play.

Last year was a fantastic, jam packed 2 night sell-out and we have high hopes of a repeat for this year’s event, which also comes with some extras.

More more information on the showcase, please see the MANCHESTER THEATRE SHOWCASE page. To maximise the potential of your script being selected, please make sure that you read and adhere to the Submission Rules!

If you are an Agent, Casting Director or Theatre Company wishing to attend the showcase in an official capacity, please email Paul Kenney (showcase founder & producer). Please NO EMAILS FROM ACTORS AT THIS STAGE, and Writers should email if you have any questions.
