Company Description:

City Theatre is a professional theatre company in Miami, FL that celebrates 23 years of dedication to the development and production of new work, specifically the short play and short musicals format.. Since its inception, the company has received over 17,000 national script submissions (with over 1,100 submitted for this season alone) and produced over 400 original short plays by established playwrights and important new voices in the theatre industry. Best known for its award-winning Summer Shorts – America’s Short Play Festival, City Theatre also presents in its annual programming the CityWrights Professional Weekend for Playwrights Conference, and the LGBT-themed Shorts Gone Wild Festival. City Shorts is a new initiative that expands on the original special production of Island Shorts on Key Biscayne by taking the concept to other communities and smaller venues. City Theatre fulfills its educational mission with the Short Cuts Educational Tour that introduces students throughout South Florida to the art of theatre with special issues oriented works, and First Reads, a series free play reading throughout the county that involve and inform theatre-lovers about the process of new play development. In 2016 - 2017, with the support of a John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Arts Challenge grant, City Theatre has launched the “NextGen Playwright Project – “Giving Voice to the Next Generation of South Florida Playwrights”, a program mentoring twenty four talented high school dramatists in Miami Dade and Broward counties. In 2016, City Theatre was honored by the Carbonell Committee with the prestigious Bill Von Maurer Award, which recognizes significant contributions to South Florida theater development by an individual or group, for the company’s dedication to the short form play and fostering new play development.
