Submitting in-person at the Annual Producer's Meeting
The Players’ Ring will hold its annual Producers’ Meeting on Monday, February 19, 2018, at 7pm. The Producer's Meeting is for theatrical artists of all types to propose plays and performance pieces for the 27th 2018-2019 Mainstage Season and the 2019 Late Night Summer Season. Doors open at 6:30 and participants who will be pitching their projects are encouraged to arrive early to sign in and complete paperwork.
Participants must bring three bound copies of their proposed work to leave at the Players' Ring. Participants may also make four copies of the cover sheet and complete them in advance, attaching one to each copy of their submission, and submitting the fourth cover sheet for Ring Administration. This event is free and open to the public.
The Producers Meeting has become a fun-filled tradition where participants are surrounded by the interest and support of their peers and the Players' Ring community comes out to see what may be in store for the next season. Board Members and outside “judges” will hear each proposal and review them as part of the selection process. Those whose work is selected will be notified of their acceptance and once the upcoming season is finalized, those selected will take part in a Season Reveal in April and must attend the Annual Auditions as well as a mandatory Producer Orientation which will take place in May.
The Producers’ Meeting provides an excellent networking opportunity for anyone who might produce her/his own work or become involved in someone else’s production.
We also invite submissions of new works year round and you may do so by mailing in three securely bound copies of your script with three copies of this cover sheet to:
Players’ Ring Submissions, 105 Marcy St., Portsmouth, NH 03801
The Ring also welcomes digital copies of submissions. These can be emailed to us in PDF format. Please note that if you submit a digital copy, we still require the three bound, printed copies to be mailed to or dropped off at the theater. Digital copies are for the convenience of our artist committee readers only.
The Players' Ring and original works
From the beginning, the Players' Ring has promoted a varied season of published plays and original works by local and regional playwrights. Original works have been a mainstay of the Players’ Ring since David Mauriello’s “Body” was produced in January of 1993. As we prepare for our 27th Season, the Players’ Ring has become synonymous with producing established and challenging new works by internationally known artists as well as new plays by local and regional performing artists.
