Headwaters Program



One third of the productions CRT has produced over the last 20 years have been World Premieres. Why are new plays so important to CRT? Because they are the lifeblood of the American theatre. They share with us the diverse, yet universal, human experience.

The Headwaters Program promotes three avenues for new work:

The Headwaters New Play Festival, which takes place in late August, presents staged readings of two, never-produced new plays. One of these plays may be selected to have a fully produced World Premiere production in an upcoming season.

The KID Show is a commissioned work which takes local young people (ages 10-18) through the process of creating a fully produced, original show.

And finally, our Young Audience Outreach Tour (YAOT), which brings high quality musical theatre to rural and underserved communities. This program annually produces an original children’s show, grades K-6 grade, that tours throughout the southwest.
