New Plays for Young Audiences 


CRT has a long-standing commitment to new theatre for young audiences, and every year CRT commissions a new show for its celebrated Young Audience Outreach Tour. The goal of this program is to bring theatre to thousands of kids in rural and underserved communities throughout the Southwest while creating an exciting opportunity for emerging playwrights. Bilingual (English/Spanish) plays are preferred, but not required. We are looking for playwrights interested in working among a collaborative artistic team. YAOT performs shows based on core curriculum subjects: history of U.S. Presidents, the science of flight, the geography of the United States, the water cycle, the importance of math.


The KID Show‘s mission is to provoke and empower the creative minds of local youth while placing them in a professional environment and encouraging them to play. Since 2003, a professional team of CRT actors, directors, playwrights, painters, designers, and stage managers mentor local kids (ages 10-18) through the process of creating a fully produced, original show. Kids participate in every aspect of the play-making experience; they design and assist in building costumes, scenery, and puppets while rehearsing the play they ultimately perform in CRT’s state-of-the-art Ruth Humphreys Brown Theatre. We are looking for family-friendly plays written for young actors, with a cast size of 10-16.
