The Montana Playwrights Network (MPN) offers an exciting opportunity for Montana playwrights, called the 2019 MPN Premiere Project. We have engaged in a statewide partnership with three theatre companies to offer full productions of original works by Montana Playwrights. Each of the three theatres will review script submissions and individually choose a full-length play or series of one-acts to produce as part of their 2019 theatre season. Participating theatres include the Montana Actors Theatre in Havre, Verge Theater in Bozeman, and Carroll College Theatre in Helena.
Winning playwrights will receive a stipend to assist with travel costs as well as a royalty. Participating theatre companies will receive funds to assist with costs of the production. MPN will serve as project manager and as liaison between the companies and playwrights, and assist with dramaturgical processes.
