The Kennedy Center

Page-to-Stage New Play Festival

August 31 – September 2

Applications are now closed.

Stay tuned for the full schedule of events.

Join more than 60 D.C.-area theater companies at the Kennedy Center for a series of free readings and open rehearsals of plays and musicals in development by local, regional, and national playwrights, librettists, and composers—some with scripts in hand, others almost fully staged.

Now entering its 18th year, Page-to-Stage was created to fill the Washington, D.C. theater community's need for an accessible space to perform and workshop new plays. During this festival, theater artists receive feedback and network with others, allowing them to refine their work and develop relationships that lead to later collaborations. The free performances reflect the dynamic make-up of all corners of the city, whether you are a newcomer or a veteran to theater.
