Play Submissions and Script Development Opportunities
Alumnae Theatre Company is located in Toronto, Canada, and has been staging adventurous theatre for over 100 years.
New Play Development Group
All Active, Lifetime and Senior Supporting Members of the Alumnae Theatre are invited to join the New Play Development (NPD) group.
We’re a group of women playwrights and dramaturges, at all levels of experience, who meet once a month from September through June to read and share our work, give feedback to each other, and discuss script and playwriting issues.
Partnering with directors, dramaturges, and actors, NPD organizes 3 annual showcases of new Canadian works:
Many NPD members submit plays to the New Ideas Festival, Alumnae Theatre’s juried 3-week festival of new short plays held each March, and to Alumnae’s FireWorks, which features 2 to 3 full production works each November.
How to Join the New Play Development (NPD) Group
The NPD group comprises Active Members of the Alumnae Theatre Company. If you are not yet a member of the Alumnae, please join. For more information on participating and the meeting dates/times contact Ramona Baillie, the Committee Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Mainstage plays are usually written by established playwrights. However, any playwright is welcome to submit his/her script to our programming chair at any time for consideration.
The Mainstage season programming process occurs between June and October each year, with a season usually announced in November or December.
