Play Submissions

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. Playwrights are urged to consult The Dramatists Sourcebook and individual organizations’ websites for complete information on submission policies at American theaters.

Fellowship Training Program

Fellowship Training opportunities are available in the following departments:

Stage Management

The Stage Management Fellowship Training Program is designed for early-career theater professionals who have chosen a career in stage management. Trainees will support the Equity Stage Manager and Assistant Stage Manager, observing all aspects of stage management for the duration of one full production. Trainees will also attend production meetings and rehearsals. The Program provides a stipend of $275 per week starting the week before rehearsals. Trainees will be able to take advantage of Atlantic’s Volunteer Training program, which includes sit-down sessions with Atlantic staff, directors, writers, and designers. The Fellowship Training Program looks to offer more than the traditional P.A. employment opportunity, by involving the Trainee in the company as part of the extended Atlantic Family, and by investing in his or her training and career.

The Fellowship Training Program has a rolling application process.

Volunteer Training Program

We will begin accepting summer applications soon.

Each semester, we welcome trainees to the Atlantic family, providing opportunities for mentorship from Atlantic staff and allowing them to work closely with each team. In addition to getting to know the ins and outs of a specific department, there are weekly Trainee Panels where trainees will hear from each staff member to learn what goes into making Atlantic run, and bi-weekly Staff Meetings where trainees will be able to hear what’s happening across the organization as well as report on their own experiences. In addition, trainees will be involved in special events at Atlantic, including opening nights.

Most volunteer trainees are undergraduate and graduate students, or recent college graduates. We offer college credit when applicable, tickets to all of the Atlantic Mainstage and Stage 2 performances, and complimentary tickets to certain Broadway and Off-Broadway shows.
