The New Works Festival: Gulfshore Playhouse hosts an annual New Works Festival which consists of developmental workshops and public readings of the scripts selected. There is an open call for submissions in the fall of each season and the submission period remains open until 150 scripts are received. The festival takes place in September of each year. In order to be eligible for the New Works Festival, the play cannot have had a full production and at this time, we are unable to accept musical submissions. Keep an eye out in the fall for our formal call for submissions which will include details on when submissions open. Please note that any play submitted prior to the date and time submissions open will not be considered for the New Works Festival.
