dg resource directory
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.

    Welcome to Ridgedale Players, one of the oldest community theaters in the state! Let us tell you a little about our history. Our group was born during the Great Depression – October 1931 to be exact. A teacher at Lincoln High School named Minna Miller Smith was asked to form a cultural group using funds provided by the Federal Emergency Relief Administration. Because of widespread unemployment, morale was at a low point all over the country and this agency was formed to give people something to do. A group of 27 would-be thespians met at Mrs. Smith’s home (20 Poplar Park in Pleasant Ridge)...

Black and Brown Theatre likes to say "the goal is to fail" and by that we mean, we hope that in the next 5-10 years other theatre companies will employ theatre artists of color so often that we won't be necessary.
