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.
