Middle School Playwriting Competition

NYCCT is proud to host an annual playwriting competition for the city’s most talented up-and-coming writers: middle school students.

Calling All Young Playwrights!

New York City Children’s Theater is excited to continue our Middle School Playwriting Competition, now in its 8th year, this school year!

How to Participate

This year, we’re asking students in grades 6-8 to write an original, entertaining and enriching 10-minute play about the topic of their choice.

Four to Six Grand Prize Winners will have their plays produced as readings on Zoom in May 2021.

More details on how to submit your play coming soon!
