  • A maximum of 5 pages of an excerpt of your script in development, if applicable, or a maximum of 5 pages of a detailed outline of the project if no script is available yet

Call for Submissions - RBC Emerging Artists Program

Canadian Stage is pleased to announce a call for submissions for our RBC Emerging Artist Program, running from November 2019 to June 2020. The program will support three creators working within the performing arts. The deadline for submission is Friday October 4th, 2019 at 5pm.

Through this program, Canadian Stage offers development support, mentorship, networking opportunities, and professional resources to our city’s emerging creators. Canadian Stage supports artists, collectives and companies who are creating contemporary performance works in theatre, dance, and hybrid forms.

Script and Project Submissions

Canadian Stage does not accept unsolicited script submissions. However, we are always happy to hear about exciting new work in the making that fits our mandate, and we welcome playwrights and theatre creators who want to introduce themselves to Canadian Stage. If your play or project has an upcoming reading, workshop presentation or full production, please send an invitation (including a brief statement about why your work might be well suited for Canadian Stage's programming) to Mel Hague at mhague@canadianstage.com, and we will try our best to have one of our artistic team members see it.
