Theatre professionals, make a difference in the life of young playwrights by reading 5-10 scripts and scoring them before they get passed along to the final Contest judges. You'll be one of the first to read these unique works! Readers are usually needed around May-July. If you would like to foster the creative voices of young people, please contact us for reading opportunities.
