Box Office hours:  Mon: 10am - 5pm,   Tues - Fri: 10am - 8pm,   Sat: 12pm - 8pm (closed Sundays).    SUBSCRIBE to our 2023-24 season: 403-294-7447

We seek new works and previously produced plays through literary agents, literary managers, play-development centres, artistic directors and playwrights themselves. We are looking for scripts that share stories that entertain and delight, and speak to the diverse audiences of Theatre Calgary.


Script Submissions

To propose a script submission for production consideration or creative development, please send the following information:

  • A one-paragraph synopsis of the play
  • Background about its development or production to date
  • A cast breakdown
  • Bios of the playwright(s), and key creative collaborators (if applicable)
  • If available, a short excerpt from the script (10 pages max.)
  • Musical projects should also include an online source for selected songs

It is always nice to see a writer’s work in person, so do feel free to invite us to see the work itself if it is in production.

If we are interested in further information, a full-length script will be requested upon review of these materials. Please be aware that due to the high volume of scripts we receive and the amount activity during our production season, response times can vary greatly. We appreciate your patience.

All script submissions are currently paused until the fall of 2023.  Please check back here for an update of when submissions will once again be accepted.
