Comedies. Dramas. Musicals.

All are welcome!

New Art City Theatre celebrates the writer and his work. Comedy, drama, or a musical – if it’s compelling, we’ll put your script into the hands of professional theatre artists who rehearse and refine according to your vision. This exciting process culminates in a series of readings in front of a live audience for realtime feedback.

The Submission Portal for Festival ’24 is Now CLOSED

We sincerely hope you’ll come back and submit next year.

We’re dedicated to creating a nurturing, creative, fun, inspiring and encouraging environment for writers to “play” in. The ultimate goal during a writer’s residency in Ventura is for you to make discoveries about your piece, or to have your instincts confirmed, or both. We do our utmost to make your time here and the reading of your project a wonderful experience. We’ll always bring positive energy to our conversations and the support we offer. Our expectation of writers who are included in our festivals is that you likewise bring a spirit of collaboration and kindness to the room, along with respect for the many artists who bring their talent to the table so that your work can grow. Our dearest wish is that you find artistic success with your project and that you’ll want to come back to NACT in the future.

We look forward to learning about your work! Please give us a way to stay in touch so you’ll be the first to know when we’re accepting submission again.
