Call for original plays--Desert Foothills Theater (DFT)

The Desert Foothills Theater (DFT) is currently looking for two plays for their “Arizona Series” for our next two seasons. DFT is in the Cave Creek/Carefree/North Scottsdale area and has been producing plays for over 30 years.

Interested playwrights may submit only one play. To qualify for the Arizona Series, a play must either be written by an Arizona playwright or written with the subject of the play being directly related to Arizona.
To be considered for the Arizona Series, you must submit the following to the chairman of DFT’s Artistic Committee (AC) no later than Wednesday, December 3, 2008, noon:

- a 1-page synopsis of the play (No name on the synopsis)
- your bio
- a 10-page writing sample from that play (No name on any page)
- if submitting a musical, one original song with lyrics on CD
- your contact info including mailing address, cell phone and e-mail.
Submissions will be read without the playwright’s name on the script to eliminate bias for known playwrights. The AC will judge submissions and chose the top three. These plays will then be submitted in their entirety to the AC for a final selection. The developmental process may include staged readings to allow writers continued development of their work.

DFT’s Artistic Committee will make their decision and contact all applicants no later than February 5, 2009. Playwrights will be paid royalties for each performance of their play; DFT usually performs a show 10 times. Pay will be in the $50-$75 range per performance.

Submissions can be sent to:
Alexx Stuart
7137 E. Canyon Wren Circle
Scottsdale, AZ 85266
