Previous Workshops


The Human Race operates a residency and workshop series designed to develop new plays and musicals. The Residency is a ten-day to two-week program that brings the playwright or writing team together for an un-interrupted work session with a handful of theatre artists. Our Workshop is a two-week program—working with professional performers/directors—and culminating in at least 2 public performances in a staged reading format.

The Human Race also produces premiere productions for both The Loft Theatre (a 212-seat thrust stage) and the Victoria Theatre (a 1,100-seat proscenium), however, we tend to produce shows that 1) have already been produced, 2) we have a familiarity with the writers or 3) that we have developed at The Human Race.

We do not accept unsolicited submissions, but you may send an introductory letter with information about your show. If we are interested, you will then be contacted. We ask for a full script (both plays and musicals), a CD recording of the music (preferably studio with a minimum of 6 songs from the show) and any pertinent information about the show, its history, previous readings or productions, and biographies of the writers.

Our response time can be up to six months. The best time to submit is during the fall for The Marsha Hanna New Play Workshops (winter 2015) or the Festival of New Musicals (summer 2015). Thank you for your interest in The Human Race.
