Tutti Bravi Productions, Inc., in collaboration with the New Rochelle Council on the Arts, issues a call for Westchester writers to submit their works about a Westchester person, place or event, to be produced as a theatrical piece by the Company. Manuscripts of plays, musicals, operas, poetry collections or essays which adhere to the guidelines, should be submitted digitally by May 31, 2019. Up to three semi-finalists will be selected from the entries, then interviewed for further insights into their submitted pieces, and to discuss a collaborative production process. Semi-finalists will be awarded an honorarium of $300 each. The winning selection will be produced by Tutti Bravi Productions in two stages, first as a staged reading in fall, 2019 and then as a full production in 2020. All entrants must be Westchester residents; entries must include the author’s name, address, phone number and e-mail address, plus a short bio. Entries may be in the form of stage plays, operas, musicals, poetry collections or essay collections. The subject of the piece must have a Westchester connection, involving either a former or current resident (e.g. Norman Rockwell, Thomas Paine, Madame Walker, etc.), or someone who has created something that is identified with Westchester (e.g. Walter Lantz/Woody Woodpecker; Washington Irving/The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, etc.) or a Westchester location or building – including sites that no longer exist — that has some significance (e.g. John Jay Homestead, site of Battle of White Plains, etc.) No previous publishing experience is required: Anyone who enjoys writing and has an interesting topic that fits the geographical guidelines is eligible.
