    Atlantic Theater Company accepts only solicited material, agent submissions, and work/proposals from its ensemble. Our season is comprised of four mainstage productions of new plays and revivals, and two second stage productions with an emphasis on new work.

    The season is complemented by a development series of readings and workshops, and we have an active commissioning program. In an effort to refocus our submissions policy, and attend to the large number of solicited scripts we received each season, we will no longer be accepting samples or inquiries as of September, 2012. Playwrights are urged to consult The Dramatists Sourcebook and individual organizations’ websites for complete information on submission policies at American theaters.

    The Stage Management Fellowship Program is designed for early-career theater professionals who have chosen a career in stage management. Fellows will serve as assistants to the Equity Stage Manager and Assistant Stage Manager, interacting daily with all aspects of stage management for the duration of one full production. Throughout the rehearsal period, duties will include managing props, maintaining script updates, taking rehearsal notes, staying on book for actors, and giving line notes. Fellows will also attend production meetings and rehearsals and will work as running crew backstage during productions. The Program provides a stipend of $250 per week starting the week before rehearsals. Fellows will be able to take advantage of Atlantic’s Internship program, which includes sit-down sessions with Atlantic staff, directors, writers, and designers. Some previous participants have continued the fellowship, working in the same capacity on a second Atlantic show. The Fellowship Program looks to offer more than the traditional P.A. employment opportunity, by involving the Fellow in the company as part of the extended “Atlantic Family,” and by investing in his or her training and career.

    The Fellowship Program has a rolling application process. Dates for the 2014-2015 are listed below.
