An Open Call for New Musicals!

Each year, Skyline Theatre Company proudly presents a script-in-hand reading of a new musical in development as part of New Jersey Theatre Alliance’s annual state-wide Stages Festival.

For its March 2022 offering, Skyline is seeking unproduced and original script submissions for consideration. The selected piece will be Skyline’s sole production in the 2022 Stages Festival and will be presented live in front of an audience on Skyline’s stage in Bergen County by a cast of professional actors. A post-performance Q&A session with the performers and creative team will also be held to provide feedback for future development of the piece.


In order to be eligible, the submission must have a complete script, a piano score, and no less than 75% of the score available on demo tracks that accurately represent the music and style of the entire show. Any and all underlying rights clearances for any pre-existing material used (music, score, material, etc.) must be secured. Additionally, the script should require no more than 8 actors to perform, and a precise casting plot indicating doubling is required for larger casts. The estimated running time must be between 75 and 150 minutes. Although not required, additional consideration will be given to New Jersey-based creatives and/or New Jersey-relevant subject matter.


Submitters are asked to provide Skyline with the following information and material via email in PDF format and with links to demo recordings (i.e., Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.):

1)      Title page and full list of creative team of composers, lyricists and book writers (including if there is either a director or a music director already attached to the project)

Skyline Theatre's staff and artistic community is collectively and individually committed to a culture of collaboration, equity, diversity, and inclusion that promotes creativity, mutual respect, and the flourishing of all.

We recognize that it is only through all creative perspectives that cut across age, gender, ethnic and cultural boundaries that we can deliver on our mission to create quality theatre that entertains, inspires and cultivates new and traditional audiences amongst a diverse population.
