Theater Resources Unlimited Invites Submissions For TRU SPEAK...Hear Our Voices!

Article Pixel

Deadline for submissions is October 25.

Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) invites submissions from writers for TRU SPEAK...Hear our Voices!, an evening of awareness to benefit Theater Resources Unlimited. Submissions will be accepted through October 25 for plays and musicals that express your deepest concerns about the world we live in. (Musicals are particularly encouraged right now.)

Please send submissions to TRUPlaySubmissions@gmail.com.

"We are currently accepting submissions through midnight October 25th. Please send plays and musicals that run less than 12 minutes, and are suitable for virtual presentation. Humor is allowed. Large casts are not, unless you have a clear idea of how to effectively present more than 5 characters in a virtual medium. Send your submission to TRUPlaySubmissions@gmail.com - we will select one hour's worth of material and put together a cast and creative team, professionally record and edit for virtual presentation.

Submissions will be presented at TRU SPEAK ... Hear Our Voices!, our annual fundraising gala reinvented for these virtual - and challenging - times. We will present a curated selection of short plays and musicals by TRU writers, produced by TRU producers and directed by TRU directors, all touching upon current social issues. And each will be introduced live by former TRU honorees, including Jim Morgan of the York Theatre, two-time Tony winning director/choreographer Jerry Mitchell and four-time Tony winning producer Cheryl Wiesenfeld."
