The Magik Theatre is seeking playwrights to adapt classic or popular literature for youth into stage plays and musicals to be work-shopped during the 2017-2018 season.
All submissions must be proposed ideas for new adaptations (not yet produced). Magik is seeking work that is appropriate for families with children ages 3 – 17 that have a small cast and a running time no longer than 70 minutes. If selected, each playwright will be required to attend multiple readings of new work, both their own and that of their peers, over the course of the 2017-2018 season. Playwrights may submit multiple times, completing a separate form for each adaptation proposal.
If submitted before September 15, 2017 you will be notified by October 1, 2017 if your project has been selected to move on to the next round, and will be asked for an in-person or Skype interview and some samples of your previous work. If submitted after September 15, 2017 you will be considered for the following year.
