Deadline: February 1, 2025
Accepts Submissions of: Musicals /



Established in 1982, the contest seeks to promote the theater arts and to encourage and support the creation of original plays by Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine residents.

The cash prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the winning playwright. Funding for the award is provided by the Audrey Mixer Endowment Fund. The Valley Players reserves the right not to give an award.

Plays will be judged by a panel of Valley Players members who have been actively involved in producing, directing, acting and/or technical aspects of productions.

Any Vermont, New Hampshire or Maine resident is eligible to submit one or more original, full length, non-musical plays for consideration, providing the play has not been produced on stage before and has not been previously published.

Comments from NMI Staff:

The application for 2023 was already due in February, so I decided to put next year’s deadline.
