New Voices is the nation's longest continuously running collegiate new and original play festival! Since 1982, New Voices features original, unpublished scripts from the WPI community: students, faculty, staff, alums, family, friends, acquaintances, audience members, and others.
Any type of producible script may be accepted: monologues, short plays, multiple acts, musicals, and other dramatic pieces. A team of dramaturgs read every script submitted and select the pieces to be performed during the New Voices Festival that year. The selecting Dramaturgs are theatre professionals or academics with years of experience in performance. We anticipate 50-100 submissions each year.
This coming D-term will mark the 32nd year of New Voices Festivals. New Voices 32 will run April 16th-19th, 2014 at 7:00pm. The plays will be announced prior to the Friday night showing of the C-Term Masque production on February 14th, 2014.
Submissions can be sent to email@example.com beginning in C-Term. For more information, please review the Submission Guidelines.
All scripts must be original works. Adaptations of public domain material (or material for which the author has acquired the rights) are acceptable provided the title page clearly states the work is an adaptation and proof of rights is submitted with the script.
