GAC is soliciting plays from a wide variety of sources. To make this process fair to all and to assure that GAC has the best possible season, these are the guidelines:
Anyone can submit a play for consideration by providing the required copies and the Play Submission Form, found on the website. Any play received may be considered for this or future seasons.
If you are a director, you may submit plays that interest you; however, plays submitted by one director may occasionally be chosen but given to another director. A director may only direct one play per season, but may submit numerous plays. In that instance, if more than one play submitted by a particular director is chosen, and the director is chosen to direct one of his/her submissions, the additional plays will be directed by other directors.
If you are a director, you do have the option of submitting ONE play that cannot be offered to anyone else (though you may still submit numerous scripts). To do this, you would need to submit a “package”, which includes the script, a named director, a named producer and an estimated budget. (We expect this to be a rough estimate.)
If you are a producer, you may submit a play without a named director. You may later suggest possible directors, but the final choice will lie with the Board.
Anyone can submit to direct, without a specific show in mind. Please provide the Play Selection Committee with a copy of your resume and the types of shows you would enjoy directing for GAC.
Anyone can submit to produce without a specific show in mind.
Please bring one copy of your full proposal--including the complete script--to the GAC facility at 123 Centerway (when we're open for a rehearsal or show), or mail them to PO Box 293, Greenbelt MD 20768-0293. Also attach a copy of the appropriate Play Submission Form, which is available in Adobe Acrobat or Word .doc formats. Or, submit an electronic version of the script (in pdf format) and submission form. The deadline is January 1, 2013. Submit to, and for more information, Susan Harper, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
