Denver Center for the Performing Arts

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

We will accept one-act play submissions Oct. 1, 2016-Dec. 1, 2016. 

Playwrights must be currently enrolled in a Colorado high school or home school.

The competition will result in ten semi-finalists and three finalists. The finalists will receive a $250 cash scholarship, a staged reading at the 2017 Colorado New Play Summit in February and a complimentary pass to any reading or production at the Summit. In addition, each teacher of the top three finalists will receive a $250 gift certificate for books, supplies or other teaching tools for their classrooms. One play will be selected for a full production in the summer by the Education department — written, cast with and produced by teens.
