Submission Policy
At The Human Race, we offer development programs to assist playwrights by providing readings, workshops and sometimes, full productions.  Because we are a small company, we are very selective on the works that we choose to develop – and always a variety of factors apply;  ie: subject matter, size of cast, our ability to provide what the playwright needs.  If you want us to consider your play,  please submit the following:
  • Title of your play
  • Synopsis of your play
  • Number of characters (note if any double casting)
  • Short playwright bio
  • List any readings/workshops/performances of your play (private or public)

Email to Emily N. Wells, Artistic Director: emily@humanracetheatre.org

Please allow up to 3 months for a reply.

What happens if I’m late to my performance?

Performances begin promptly. Latecomers will be seated at the house manager’s discretion, and may have to watch the performance on a video monitor in the lobby until they can be seated. Patrons who leave the Loft Theatre during a performance may—at the sole discretion of the house manager—be re-seated, although possibly in different seats, during the performance. This is a policy we must enforce without exception, due to the layout of the Loft and for the safety of our actors and enjoyment of audience members.

If you are a Loft subscriber and the tickets in question were purchased as part of a subscription package, they may be exchanged for free (no fees) until one hour before curtain the day before your scheduled performance. There may be an up-charge if you exchange into a more expensive performance.

Non-subscribers may exchange their tickets for a different performance of the same show for a flat $5 fee until one hour before curtain the day before your scheduled performance. Exchanges can be made by phone (937-228-3630) or in person.

Otherwise, if at the last minute you are unable to use your tickets, you may turn them in as a contribution to The Human Race Theatre Company. The value of the donated tickets is tax-deductible and acknowledged by mail. Tickets for past performances cannot be considered a donation.

There are no refunds.

Productions and Beyond

The Loft Season

Our signature subscription season at the Loft Theatre consists of plays and musicals, recent releases, classics, and premieres. Productions on the Loft Season are rehearsed, built and produced in Dayton. The Human Race produces under a Small Professional Theatre contract with Actors’ Equity Association (AEA), the union of professional actors and stage managers.

The Victoria Theatre

From time to time, we present special events on the historic 1,100-seat theatre’s stage, like 2015’s Lewis Black in Concert and 2017’s co-production of A Christmas Story with the Victoria Theatre. For over 25 years, regional audiences enjoyed seeing our work in this magnificent venue when we produced one show each season on the Victoria Theatre Association’s Broadway Series.

New Works: Musical Theatre Workshops

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

New Works: Marsha Hanna New Play Workshops

Named after The Human Race Theatre Company’s late artistic director, the New Play Workshops program provides playwrights a residency opportunity in order to further develop a new play in a workshop setting, guided by a seasoned director and supported by professional actors. The process sometimes culminates in the staged reading of the play on the Loft Theatre stage.

Monday Night Playreading Series

Throughout the season, we will be hosting table readings of plays considered to be some of the best the theatre world has to offer, and all works of interest to The Human Race as potential full-productions.  Open to the public and voiced by many of the region’s top performers, these readings provide an opportunity for theatre lovers to hear and enjoy scripts they may not be able to experience otherwise.

Preview Performance

Our preview performance is on the Thursday evening prior to our Friday evening openings. In the tradition of Broadway, it offers a significantly reduced ticket price and is available for both subscription and single ticket buyers. (See Inside Track)

Pay What You CAN Open Rehearsal

A special sneak peek with the admittance of a cash donation of your choosing that will go to a not-for-profit service organization (which varies on a production-by-production basis) or canned goods/non-perishable food items to The Foodbank. This serves community needs as well as patrons who may find the regular performances more than their budgets can afford.

Pay What You CAN open rehearsals occur on the Wednesday before the preview performance of productions in the Loft series. Numbers are handed out to patrons at 6:30 p.m. and they are admitted in order when the house opens at 7:30 p.m.

Inside Track

A pre-show discussion with the show’s director held in the Loft Lobby 45 minutes prior to the Thursday Preview. This is an opportunity for the audience to meet the director and learn about the creative process of producing the play they are about to see.

While We’re on the Subject

A moderated discussion held with the cast and the audience members immediately following the matinee performance on the second Sunday of a production. Frequently, a guest speaker joins the group to offer unique commentary concerning the topics brought to light by the production.

The Loft Bar

Soda, wine, beer, mixed drinks and snack items are available in our lobby for every show. Drinks may be taken into the Loft during the performance.

Education & Engagement Programs

Artists in the Schools/Community Workshops

The Human Race develops curriculum-based workshops and activities to enliven and enrich students’ classroom learning experiences, opportunities to explore life-long learning, as well as workshops in the theatre craft of acting and technical theatre. From a one-time visit to a long-term residency, programs can be designed to fit the needs of the group. The past season included two semester-long Shakespeare residencies and a new “Stages & Stories” program.

Private Coaching

Private Coaching Sessions are available for students ages 16–adult in acting, singing and/or audition preparation, and are taught by Human Race professionals.

Etcetera

Subscriptions

Our subscribers are theatre patrons who enjoy the benefits of discounted tickets, select seating and special customer service by pre-purchasing a package of shows at the Loft. Each subscription package is priced to provide savings that increase with the size of the package.

Single Tickets

Single Tickets go on sale to non-subscribers at specific times for each of our Loft shows.  The prices vary based on the day of the week and the location in the theatre.  All single tickets are sold through Dayton Live and may include processing and mailing charges.  Single Tickets are not refundable not can they be exchanged.
