Three Festivals -
Three Times a Year

The Players Theatre Short Play & Musical Festival produces three - three week festivals - three times a year:  Sex! (February), NYC (June) and Boo! (October).

Submissions are gathered from all over the country with 15 short plays or musicals being selected by a panel of judges for each festival.  Each week a winner - selected by audience vote - receives the honor of "Best of the Week" and $100 prize.

The shows are produced entirely by the playwright and their team and are presented at the Steve & Marie Sgouros Black Box Theatre - located on the 3rd floor of the historic Players Theatre in the heart of Greenwich Village - NYC.

Submissions

We accept submission via the SUBMITTABLE portal which appears on our home page when submissions open for the next festival.

New York City is like no other place in the world!  We are seeking plays that get to the heart of the Big Apple and explore what makes this town tick.  Unique New York - it's more than a tongue twister - it is a way of life!
