Open Submissions for The Icebreaker Series

Open Submissions for The Icebreaker Series

CATEGORY: Performer

Permafrost Theatre Collective
Brooklyn, NY

Job Details


A new season of The Icebreaker Series is upon us and we are excited to open our digital doors for submissions! Our next season will take place August through December. We are looking for early-career writers and musicians, specifically risk-takers willing to push the boundaries of live online theatre performance. In order to achieve inclusivity within our Collective, we are calling for submissions from those who identify as artists of color. Read through to learn more about each part of the Series and how you can submit.

For our reading series, we are looking for full-length scripts that are works-in-progress to be read on Zoom with a full cast and director provided by the Collective.

For our 'Plugged In' at-home concerts, we are looking for musicians and singers who can perform original songs, self-accompanied via webcam as part of a lineup of 6-10 artists.


We are also soliciting for short 1-2 minute pieces for our new 'Script to Screen' initiative. Begun in the pandemic as a promotional tool for the long-form readings, this format has expanded into its own medium. 'Script to Screen' sees brief excerpts of full-length plays or specifically written short scripts fully-voiced by actors, animated, and released for easy consumption on social-media.

For past examples of The Icebreaker Series, please visit our website - - or find us on Instagram and Facebook. 

Deadline for submissions is July 22nd. Full season will be announced on August 1st.
