Blueberry Pond Theatre Ensemble, Westchester, NY, ongoing

you are what we are all about: You are not required to have been published or produced. Actually, we are looking for new talent. We will not produce plays that have been produced elsewhere (other then the occasional one-night reading). So do not bring in trunk plays or previously produced plays. What we do look for is talent that reflects the Blueberry brand of edgy, provocative, thoughtful and original material. We are constrained by the physical and financial limitations of a 49-seat theater. So plays with more then six characters, sweeping panorama or complex set and technical requirements are unlikely to be produced at Blueberry. We do produce dramas, comedies and musicals. Our Artistic Director will explain in greater detail how we select plays for main stage, but basically once the Artistic Director recommends a play our independent Reading Committee evaluates and determines if it is eligible. Prior to this your play will run the gauntlet of criticism at labs and a public staged reading. The last step is the Blueberry Executive Committee subject to the writer executing an acceptable license and royalty agreement then schedules it. We do pay a royalty for one-time use and do not ask the writer to give up any future royalties or rights. Contracts are loosely based upon Dramatist Guild of America guidelines.

If you are interested in an artistic home base as part of an ensemble, please send your picture, resume, and writing sample/portfolio as appropriate via email to the Artistic Director at or by U.S. Mail to
