Successful submissions will be able to be streamed, either live or pre-recorded and edited together and have no or minimal costs associated with production. We are particularly interested in pieces that address current events, including original works. Directors with works showcasing themes of social justice are strongly encouraged to submit. In your proposal, please include:
– A brief summary of the script, as well as a link to an electronic copy
– A plan for how it will be broadcast (Facebook Live, Zoom, etc)
– All associated costs with the production, including rights
-A timeline for production, including proposed performance dates
Please submit the above to Pamela Northrup, VP of Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information.

By Greenbelt Arts Center on Facebook
To give some support to the Greenbelt Arts Center in this time of uncertainty, and to give our performers a creative outlet, we have started a “Virtual Cabaret” group on Facebook. On Monday mornings, a theme is posted for the week, and members are encouraged to post a video of themselves performing a song that fits the theme. Anyone is welcome to participate, or just to cheer on those who are performing.

Theseus and the Monster in the Maze

Music Director: Stephan Brodd
Production Designer: Nicole DeWald

Location: Greenbelt Community Center Gymnasium 15 Crescent Rd.
Description: In the boarded-up building of the now-closed School For Super-Heroes, alumni of the school’s drama club gather for a secret reunion – and a meeting of the underground Resistance to the repressive Regime. The founders of the club are missing, but they’ve left behind a tantalizing clue: It’s a partial script, telling the story of Theseus, the legendary hero and founder of democracy. Now, new leaders must step forward to lead the club and bring the script to life, mounting an audacious production that may be the last hope to reopen the realm of storytime, rescue the missing heroes, and undermine the Regime’s despotic power.
