Page to Stage

Calling All Playwrights!

On Saturday, October 20th, HART Theatre is presenting a Playwright’s Showcase, taking a unique look at the creative process which takes a playwright’s work from page to stage with readings from previously unproduced plays or works in progress.

We are asking local playwrights to submit scenes no longer than 15 minutes and the best of these will be chosen to present as staged readings in an evening that encourages a dialogue between playwright and audience members.

Please send scenes electronically to with the subject “Playwright’s Showcase”. Include a short summary of the play and your contact phone number. The deadline to submit material is Monday, September 24th. We will let you know whether your scene has been chosen by the end of that week.

On Saturday, October 20th, from 1 – 5:30 p.m., you will have the opportunity to work with the six actors (3 male, 3 female) who will be reading your script. There will be time for dinner, then the Showcase begins at 7:30 p.m.

One of these new plays might end up in one of HART’s upcoming seasons…
