Festival of New Plays Deadline Extended!

Attention writers! The deadline for submissions to our new play development program, The Premiere Premieres, has been extended and the age limit has been lowered! After hosting an inspiring playwriting workshop earlier this month, led by Kevin Cole, TPP has decided to extend the deadline to allow for further play and writer development throughout the months of June and July. Originally slated for a June 9th deadline, submissions will now remain open through Monday, July 17th. The age requirement for writers, originally listed as 18, has been lowered to 14 in order to better serve the full demographic that we are interested in reaching and mentoring for this program in the years to come.

Launched in 2021, The Premiere Premieres works to give playwrights in Sioux Falls and the surrounding areas a platform for their original work in a full production setting, as a part of TPP’s mainstage season, while simultaneously providing them with a laboratory space to further develop their work through collaborative programming with other local artists. The selection process for The Premiere Premieres consists of a blind submissions review, an adjudicated festival of staged readings for semi-finalists, and a full production for the two finalists of the 2023-2024 program.

To submit, playwrights should email their script to [email protected] with the subject line “Premiere Premieres 2024 Submission” and the script attached in two versions: One with a title page and your contact information, and one without a title page or any information containing the playwright’s name, etc.

Plays must be new plays and/or have not performed in a public setting, including staged readings. We are currently only seeking plays and plays with music. Playwrights must be based within a 100 mile radius of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Questions about the program and submissions can be directed to [email protected].

We are thrilled to continue this exciting new play initiative for the Sioux Falls community. Thanks for supporting your favorite local theatre!
