New Play Development

DRAMATURGY

The Victory Theatre Center has worked with emerging playwrights to dramaturge their work for the past 32 years. The Theatre opened with the world premiere of Beth Henley’s The Miss Firecracker Contest when Ms. Henley was a student in our acting studio.  We select materials based on submissions from literary agents and referrals, and polish and refine scripts within staged readings and workshops. Our work with playwrights is aimed at supporting their creative visions and creating an opportunity for their voices to be heard. With the creation of original works, the Victory Theatre Center has an opportunity to present audiences with current, relevant and thought-provoking ideas.

SCRIPT SUBMISSIONS

The Victory Theatre Center invites you to submit your original works. Our play reading process is as follows:

Each script is read by 2 readers, then evaluated and passed on to the Artistic Directors for a final decision. Because The VTC is one of only a few venues that produces original material, the volume of submitted scripts is high. It will take time for your material to be processed. Please be assured your work will be read.

We prefer that playwrights email their plays as a PDF to victoryadmin@mindspring.com

Alternately, you may send your script with email and phone contact on the cover page, and SASE to:
