Submit Scripts

We are always on the hunt for new and imaginative works for children that embrace our philosophy that every kid’s a star.

General Guidelines

  • Submissions must be suitable for young performers.
  • Plays with simple set and costume requirements are encouraged.
  • We welcome works that favor female roles; many more girls will try out for plays than boys. Gender-neutral roles offer the most casting flexibility.
  • We require plays and musicals with casts that assign a named role to each cast member as opposed to just “chorus,” “town folk,” or “fairies.”
  • Submissions must have been produced at least one time; a formal reading will suffice. Without a “trial run,” it is difficult to identify problem areas that may need adjustments.
  • We will not represent works that use material in which the copyright is held by another artist, such as musical numbers.
  • We do not require specific formatting. However, if you refer to our samples or perusal scripts, you will find our preferred format style.
  • We prefer to represent plays and musicals for which we are the exclusive licensing agent.
