Chicago Children’s Theatre is always interested in bringing new work to the stage for children and their families. However, due to an overwhelming volume of interest, we do not accept unsolicited scripts. We ask that you ascribe to the guidelines below in order for your work to be considered.
Your work may be submitted through a literary agent. You may also submit your work if it is accompanied by a letter of recommendation from a theatre professional, such as the literary manager or artistic director from a professional theatre.
If these options do not apply to you, please send your resume, a synopsis of your script and a ten page dialogue sample to our administrative offices (ATTN: “Artistic Department”). If we are interested, we will contact you for the full script. Further feedback of your work may be provided at our discretion.
Please keep in mind that we only produce full length plays that are suitable for children and their families. Our productions are cast with professional adult actors. We do not have a formal play development program at this time.
