Script Submission Guidelines

Milwaukee Repertory Theater accepts script submissions from literary agents and by recommendation of regional theater or play development center artistic or literary staff members.  

In recognizing both the importance of remaining at the forefront of the new play conversation and the necessity and obligation to familiarize ourselves with emerging creators, Milwaukee Rep’s Artistic Staff maintains a presence at major new play festivals and reading series across the country, and remains in close conversation with many of the nation’s leading play development centers.  Our robust commissioning and producing program for new plays is a reflection of the responsibility that we hold as a major regional theater to provide a supportive, nurturing path for new plays to the stage and into the canon.  

We continue to explore new and established best practices to build an increasingly comprehensive and inclusive new play development initiative in future seasons.  Thank you for your interest in Milwaukee Repertory Theater, and sincere best wishes for the success of your endeavors.
