The Broken Arrow Community Playhouse is currently accepting scripts and director applications for our June short play production.

Deadline for submission and applications are Friday, April 30, by 11:59 p.m. Please see the guidelines and submission information for more details.

Script Guidelines
Plays should be written specifically to be performed outdoors with actors maintaining
social distance from each other. The social distancing does not have to be because of
COVID-19 in your play. Think outside the box!
• Scripts should be dramatically active in the present tense and contain minimal
• No more than five characters in a script.
• Sets must be minimal (Chairs and tables are the only items BACP will provide). These
plays will be performed outdoors, so no lighting cues are needed. Please keep sound
cues to a minimum.
• You are encouraged to write characters of all gender identities, ethnicities, race, etc.
• Scripts must be 8-10 pages, not to exceed 15 minutes, and formatted in The
Dramatist Guild style.
• Scripts must be original and previously unproduced.
• Please submit scripts that are family-friendly. Does this mean children’s theatre? No.
Ask yourself this: Would you be comfortable watching this play with your kids or your
grandparents? If the answer is yes, then submit away! Think of a PG-13 movie rating;
there’s some adult content, but nothing that would make grandma blush, maybe just
giggle a little.
• Submissions are open to playwrights over the age of 18 who currently reside in
Oklahoma, and may be of any race, color, ethnicity, or background.
• You may submit a maximum of two different scripts; only one script per playwright is
eligible for production.

Submission information
Please send your scripts to BACPShorts@gmail.com in the form of two attachments.

One attachment is the script with a list of character and description page included. The
title of the play and page numbers must appear on every page. The playwright’s name
must NOT appear on any page.

The second attachment is a cover sheet which includes the following information:
Playwright’s name
Primary mailing address
Email address(es)
Phone number(s)
