About

The Players Theatre Short Play and Musical Festival is a tri-annual festival that features short works based on a specific theme from a variety of playwrights as well as New York City directors and Actors. Plays are chosen through a selection process for each festival. Festivals take place in February (SEX-themed), June (NYC-themed) and October (BOO! Horror-themed). 

During the 3 week festival, a “Best of the Week” play is selected each week by audience vote and industry judges. The winning playwrights are awarded a $100 prize.

Submission guidelines and applications are posted on this site when the submissions are open.
