New Play Development
Carousel Players contributes to new play development of theatre for young audiences, providing dramaturgical support for playwrights and workshop opportunities at every stage of the development process. Carousel produces world premieres of new scripts by Canadian playwrights, and tours those productions regionally, provincially and nationally, assisting in disseminating new works.
We involve set, costume, sound and other designers early in the process through pre-production workshops to allow for conception and realization of designs. These concepts and designs are then integrated with the script through the development process. This fosters collaboration with creative professionals and honours the work of all artists, technicians, and production staff who collaboratively work on a piece.
Playwrights interested in working with Carousel Players on their work for young audiences ages 4 to 14 are encouraged to send a copy of their script and a letter of introduction to The Artistic Director will review these submissions. Please be aware that responses to submissions may be delayed due to the demands of the production cycle.
