Scripps Ranch Theatre’s “Out on a Limb: New Plays from America’s Finest City,” is designed to create and stage new one-act plays. The program strives to develop and produce new work that will engage playwrights and theater artists in Southern California.  It is our intention to celebrate diversity, to entertain, educate, and expand the horizons of our patrons and develop new audiences, and to contribute to the cultural and economic growth of our community.

Currently Accepting Submissions

Scripps Ranch Theatre is currently accepting scripts for its 9th annual Out On A Limb new play festival. The deadline is March 6, 2020.

Please only submit finished works (no treatments or drafts). Plays must not exceed 10 minutes. Please read below for more information.

After your play has been received it will be reviewed. We will make a final selection of 6 plays to present in performances on July 10-12 and 17-19. If your play is selected you will receive a stipend to present your play in the performances.

This year we are continuing our exciting element of awarding CASH PRIZES! Each play will be judged by a distinguished panel of judges and our audience. At the end of the sixth performance all of the scores from all of the performances will be tallied. We will then award a first, second and third prize. The prize money will be divided among the playwright, director and actors.
