Do I need to live in the NYC area to participate?

No, however if chosen, as writer, you would need someone to represent you at all required meetings if you do not live in the area.


How much does it cost?

As Theatre Now is an artist service organization, we aim to keep cost as low as possible for the writers. We're the only short musical theatre festival that offer artists honorariums and rehearsal reimbursements for each piece. That said, the cost to writers depends on the their show's requirements (cast & creative team size, number of rehearsals, size of rehearsal space, etc.) and personal choice.
