Stages makes plays and tells stories that invite everyone to live more deeply and love more boldly. We are Houston’s premiere mid-sized theater, and produce a broad scope of plays and musicals ranging from jukebox musicals and family entertainment to world premieres and new work by emerging writers. We are committed to telling stories by and for traditionally excluded communities.
We utilize a volunteer Season Selection Committee composed of staff members hailing from all of our departments. We are committed to expanding timelines for creative teams, and are reading now with an eye for productions 2+ years away.
In an effort to strike a balance between our resources and our dedication to supporting diverse voices, we have an open submissions policy for the months of April and May. This policy will go into effect beginning October 1, 2022. (Plays submitted before that date will still be considered for the 2023–24 season.)
A script submission form will be available to playwrights beginning April 2023.
