Call for Scripts

The Sauk is seeking scripts to consider for production as part of SAUK SHORTS 2024.

Scripts may be original works or published works that you would like us to consider. Scripts should have a performance time no longer than 15 minutes.

We are now accepting scripts through 5 p.m. (EST) on Friday, August 25, 2023.

Scripts should be e-mailed to saukshorts@gmail.com.

We are looking for comedies and dramas. Plays with roles for teens and young people are encouraged. 

SAUK SHORTS is an annual collection of 10-minute plays. Each year, we produce a combination of popular published works and original un-produced pieces. We try to balance a combination of local and national playwrights. There is no fee for submitting scripts.

Selected scripts will be announced in early October. If you do not receive an e-mail by October 1 at 5 p.m., your play has not been selected. A royalty is paid to all selected scripts. Scripts that are not selected for production in 2024 may be kept on file for consideration in future years.

​Performance dates are March 21-24, 2024.
