Young adult playwriting competition open to all middle school and high school students in Savannah/Chatham County!

Several winners will be selected to watch their work come to life in a professional staged reading. They will be taken on a mentored journey thru the editing, directing, and rehearsal process of building a play and then watch all their work culminate in a professional reading presented by SSC. Finalists will be selected on performance night from each age group to receive an additional prize package including a beautiful trophy, Savannah Stage Company T-Shirt, and a Cash Prize!

Our very first play at Savannah Stage Company was written by us, so we understand and value the craft of playwriting and want to help young writers share their stories with Savannah. Our winners will receive a big, beautiful trophy, not to mention First Place at Young Writers' Night doesn't look bad on a resume either...

The submission deadline is FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 1ST. Plays should be no longer than 10 pages [11 including title page].

Email your play electronically to as a .PDF document. You can write solo or as a group. If your play is chosen, you will be notified by September 9th.

The performance is SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 23RD at The SpaceStation at Starlandia. Tickets are only $10!
