Broadway Theatre Studio (BTS)

New York, NY

BTS was founded in 2009 as a development workshop and incubator for new American plays and musicals. We sponsor table readings of selected scripts using our Resident Company of actors, then work with the best pieces to produce staged readings. Outstanding works may be optioned and developed for a full production backed by our producers and creative team, both independently and in festivals throughout New York City.

Resource Directory Logo
The act of submitting creative work for a dramatist is as necessary as finishing it. But the process of finding the right submission opportunity can feel overwhelming. This is why, for more than 20 years, the Dramatists Guild has compiled a submissions and opportunities database, and published a full directory of theatres, agents, festivals, contests, workshops, retreats, and other submission opportunities to help make the life of the dramatist an easier one.

This functionality is part of suite of resources designed to help playwrights, composers, lyricists and librettists.  

Only active members or subscribers of the Guild may use the Resource Directory.

    Still Standing is a one-year residency, from March 2021 to February 2022, open to creatives across all disciplines. Twenty artists will live in a Stonehenge NYC apartment for free, in exchange for regular commissions of their work. The details and deadlines of these commissions will be agreed upon prior to move-in. While the structure may vary by medium, the goal remains the same -- we will show the world that New York City is still standing.
