New Plays for Young Audiences Submissions


One-third of CRT’s productions are new works, and every year CRT commissions a new show for it’s celebrated Young Audience Outreach Tour (YAOT). 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. With 35 years of successful productions we are looking for playwrights interested in working among a collaborative artistic team.

Submissions for 2020 are now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated. 


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.

Submissions for 2020 are now closed. Thank you to everyone who participated. 


If you like what you see and want to help us continue to bring these valuable youth programs to Creede and beyond, please donate to Creede Repertory Theatre.
