Submit A Play
Florida Studio Theatre is currently looking for submissions of full-length plays, musicals, and musical revues to be considered for possible inclusion in future Mainstage, Cabaret, and Stage III Seasons. Plays may also be considered for FST’s Burdick Play Reading Series. FST is especially interested in plays that present diverse perspectives on current social and political themes.
How to Submit Your Work for Consideration:
Please submit your plays through a literary agent or accompanied by a letter of recommendation by a theatre professional (i.e. – an Artistic Director or Literary Manager at a professional theatre). Submit a full script along with a character breakdown. If you are submitting a musical, please include a CD or .mp3 files.
Florida-based writers without representation, please introduce your work to FST by submitting a query letter, a brief synopsis (including cast requirements), and a 10-page dialogue sample. Please also include a self-addressed, stamped envelope if you would like your materials returned. Regarding any playwrights outside the state of Florida, FST is unable to accept unrepresented samples at this time.
All materials may be submitted either electronically (Word or PDF format) or via regular mail. Electronic submissions are strongly preferred.
