Send In Your Senior Theatre Materials

Deadline: July 15, 2019

ArtAge Publications, the source of Senior Theatre plays, books, and materials for older performers is accepting submissions for their 2020-21 catalog. ArtAge Publications meets the needs of older performers, from amateur to professional, so there is something for everyone—from short and easy sketches to 3-act musicals.

What to submit: The Senior Theatre collection features plays and musicals of all lengths, but short shows which run up to 20 minutes are the most popular. Directors look for comedies with mainly female casts that require few technical elements and ones that can be staged as readers theatre. Successfully performed shows have senior casts (or mostly senior) with up-to-date, feisty characters in modern and relatable situations. Roles should challenge performers, yet be fun to stage.

Though you missed the Discussion Group, the recording is very useful. You will learn:

  • What is the Senior Theatre market?
  • What kind of plays are being performed?
  • How to submit works for publication?

Our goal is to have playwrights craft shows that directors and actors will use. It was an in-depth session that attendees said was, “Very helpful!”

After you order, we will send the link. Then, contact us with any questions you may have.

Cost: $15
