Center Theatre Group - L.A.'s Theatre Company

Script Submissions

Center Theatre Group accepts full-length scripts year-round from literary agents and theatre professionals with whom we have an ongoing professional relationship.

In recognition of our commitment to fostering local voices, we encourage unrepresented writers in Southern California* to submit their unproduced plays to the HUMANITAS/CTG Playwriting Prize, part of PLAY LA, CTG’s new partnership with HUMANITAS. The Prize was established in 2015 by CTG and HUMANITAS to recognize the best new unproduced plays by Southern California writers and to encourage their premieres in Southern California theatres. (Visit the HUMANITAS website for submission guidelines)

Unsolicited queries falling outside these guidelines are not read and are deleted.

We remain committed to discovering new voices. We are investing in the uniquely rich landscape of Southern California writers through programs such as PLAY LA and our Writers' Workshop. We also continue to engage with playwrights throughout the country and internationally through active partnerships with new play festivals and playwrights' centers as well as other colleagues whose primary focus is the identification and cultivation of new writers.

Visit CTG’s Artistic Development Program section to learn more about its many activities.
