The Ghostlight Stage Company is currently seeking the following:
one act play submissions for "One Act Double Feature" Event in fall 2024

More info about opportunity below:

Company: The Ghostlight Stage Company - Cincinnati, Ohio

Pay Rate: $400 stipend (for approx. 20 hours of required audition/rehearsal/tech/performance time + however much time is needed outside of rehearsal for script adjustments).

Directors: TBD after plays are selected

Seeking: One act play submissions with run times of approximately 35-50 minutes and no more than 4 actors. We strongly encourage BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ playwrights to submit their work, as we seek to uplift the voices and stories of underrepresented artists.

About the Event: The Ghostlight Stage Company will be producing 2 original one act plays in October 2024 (exact date coming soon) as part of its second annual One Act Double Feature event. This event is unique in that it is a hybrid between a typical staged reading and a full production. There will be a short 1-2 week rehearsal process of only 4 rehearsals per piece that concludes with performances for the public at the end of the week. In addition, all plays will be assigned a costume and set designer who will come up with design concepts for the plays and a director who will come up with a full vision for the piece, as if they were being fully produced. These designs for set and costumes will be shared with the audience in the form of lobby displays. Additionally, the directors and playwrights will both speak during the performance about how the play would continue on in its development to give the audience a better idea of what the production would look like on a full scale. The event will "pull back the curtain" for audiences to show them what all goes into the process of developing new work, while also giving playwrights the valuable experience of having a full team of designers, a director and actors to explore their piece without it being fully produced yet.

To Submit: Please email with the subject line, “PLAY SUBMISSION.” In your email please attach a relevant resume of experience, a one page cover letter describing what interests you about this workshop process / event, and all plays you would like to submit for consideration. Send these submissions to The Ghostlight Stage Company’s Theatrical Director, Aiden Dalton at: 

Submission Deadline: Play submissions will be accepted until June 22, 2024. Plays will be selected on a rolling basis, and therefore submissions could close before this time if we find what we are looking for before then. Submitting early is encouraged.

Production Schedule:
Auditions: August 2024
Workshop process & performances: late September / early October 2024 (exact dates TBD)

There will be 4 rehearsals for each piece that are approximately 4 hours each. Rehearsal schedule can be flexible to the playwright's schedule if conflicts are given in advance. These rehearsals will be spread out between the course of 2 weeks, to allow for time in between rehearsals for playwrights to make adjustments to the script.
