Script Submission

New Play Development

We do not accept unsolicited scripts. City Theatre focuses on new works that are often in their world premieres or second productions, and frequently still in development. Represented playwrights may submit scripts through their agents, who should also include the playwright’s bio or resume, a character breakdown, and audio for musicals. Unrepresented playwrights should submit a query by mail to find out whether City Theatre will request the full script.
Query submission guidelines >

Ticket Donations


City Theatre supports nonprofit organizations and community efforts by donating ticket vouchers for a variety of fundraising and benefit events. The typical donation is two vouchers.
