The Montana Playwrights Network (MPN) offers an exciting opportunity for Montana playwrights, the 2021 MPN Premiere Project. We have engaged in a statewide partnership with four theatre companies to offer full productions of original works by Montana Playwrights. Each of the four theatres will review script submissions and individually choose a full-length play or series of one-acts to produce as part of their 2021 theatre season. Participating theatres include the Montana Actors Theatre in Havre, the Judith Mountain Players in Lewistown, MPN’s own Helena Avenue Theatre (HAT) in Helena and a venue to be determined in Missoula.
Winning playwrights will receive a royalty paid by the producing venue. 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.
