Now accepting submissions!

It's that time of the semester again! We're currently accepting submissions for any original scripts, published scripts that you'd like to see performed, or even just ideas for scripts that you (or someone else) might like to write for next fall.

A few clarifications:
1. Scripts can be submitted without any director chosen for the project. (In fact, this is preferred, unless you have your heart set on directing a specific show.)

2. The script doesn't have to be finished yet! Send us the outline of the story along with a few sample pages (and, of course, the submission form), and we'll give it as much consideration as a complete script.

3. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. If you've been rejected in the past, it may just be that we had an overwhelming number of submissions that year, or gave priority to returning writers. There's no reason to avoid sending a script again--at the very least, you can get some feedback on your work.

4. The submission forms are available all over campus--there are folders of blank forms attached to each poster. If you can't find these, or the folder is empty, email for a copy.

The submission deadline is April 15. Still have questions? Email Artistic Director Jennie Holan at for more info.

Season Change

Posing, as some of you have noticed, has had a date change. Due to some unforseen conflicts, the show will now be going up April 7-9. As always, admission is free. Shows start at 8:00, and the doors will still open 10 minutes before curtain.

Hope to see you all there!
