Call for Plays (Deadline: 11/16)

Open Submissions being accepted for the 12th Annual New Works Festival at College of the Canyons

College of the Canyons Theatre Department wants your play, and currently has an open call for original plays for its New Works Festival. 10 minutes plays, One Acts, Full Length and Monologues are accepted

The festival, now in its 11th year, continues to evolve. Originally only for COC students, the festival continues to broaden its reach, working with playwrights across the country, sometimes conducting readings and workshops via videolink.

Directed by long time Adjunct Faculty David Stears. Mr Stears is no stranger to developing new works, having developed over 65 original works for the stage including over 20 original plays educational programming.

The New Works Festival at COC unique. Focusing on the process of the playwright, it is one of the few new plays festivals that allow for development during the process. Also unique to most festivals is the submission process is open to all and there is no submission fee (however, those playwrights selected to participate will have to enroll in a class).

Plays should be original works submitted by the original playwright. Selected playwrights must be willing to participate in the development process during the spring semester

The New Works Festival is now publishing the selected works presented during the festival. “It is a great piece for the writers and the actors to have their piece published as part of an annual anthology.” Says David Stears. The first of the Anthologies is the New Works Festival Anthology 2008, is available through Createspace ( or through Amazon.

The deadline for submissions is November 16th at 5pm
