OBP Seeking Script Submissions


The Off-Broadway Players are making plans to attend the 61st annual Provincial Drama Festival which is being held in Grand Falls-Windsor this coming Easter, but first, they need to find the right script and someone to lead the charge.


"We are looking for a play and a director" says Steve Perchard, president of the Off-Broadway Players. "We are currently seeking script submissions from anybody in the community who might have an interest in directing, or might know have a great script and somebody in mind who might be able to direct it."

Those interested in submitting a script, must submit 10 copies of the play to the troupe along with the name of an interested director by Monday, November 1st.

There are many things that the theatre troupe has to consider when selecting a play, including its ability to cast the show, the expense of the production, the complexities of set and costuming and other technical challenges. The show also has to have the ability to travel to Grand-Falls.

Once submissions are in, the group will form a reading committee that will evaluate each play, and ultimately make a decision as to what play will be selected.

Those interested in submitting can contact Mr. Perchard by calling 632.2146, or by e-mailing offbroadwayplayers@gmail.com.

The Off-Broadway Players take to the stage this weekend with their Halloween production of "Clue" which takes to the stage Friday and Saturday night at 8:00 pm.
