Chatham Community Players' Jersey Voices One-Act Festival Seeks Original Works


Chatham Community Players is seeking original, one-act plays, short musicals, and/or original dance pieces, written by New Jersey (or New Jersey connected) authors, for Jersey Voices' 27th Annual Production.

The submission DEADLINE is MARCH 7th, just under four months away!

We are very conscious of the ever-changing health crisis, and the safety of our creative team and audience is of paramount importance to us -- but so are the need for creative outlets and live theater.  With that in mind, we are requesting that all scripts take place in an outdoor setting or location and run 15 minutes or less.  

While we sincerely hope that our selected pieces will each be performed in our Black Box Theater in Chatham on the last weekend in July and first weekend in August, we know that COVID-19 may prohibit that from happening, in which case selected pieces will be performed outdoors, locally, the same weekends.

Play submissions can be of any genre, style, length up to 15 minutes, and set in any outdoor location. 

We are not looking for pieces written Zoom or an online environment. 

We're accepting scripts this year by e-mail only, and can be sent to

If you have any questions, please visit our website at or send an e-mail to producer Jessica Phelan at
