Calling all writers! We're looking for short scripts!

Central Vermont Radio Theater is back!

The White River Valley Players are soliciting original radio scripts for “Central Vermont Radio Theater 2019”.

By popular demand the Players are bringing back the show that entertained appreciative audiences in the fall of 2017. The "studio audience" will watch as station WRVP does a live broadcast of all-new stories, music, newscasts, and commercials. Performances of “Central Vermont Radio Theater 2019” will take place in late April 2019.

The radio scripts should be from three to ten minutes in length and can be any genre (comedy, mystery, documentary, mockumentory, sports, interview, memoir, commercial) and can be on any subject. The radio station is equipped with sound-effects and will have live musicians, either of which could be a part of any play.

Selected plays will first be read in a workshop setting, and authors may then work with the Players to edit their plays for final presentation.

Plays can be submitted in printed form, mailed to The White River Valley Players, PO Box 192, Rochester, VT 05767; or may be submitted in PDF form to Director Dick Robson at Submissions should be received by February 15, 2019.

ACTORS: Stay tuned for audition info and mark your calendars for February 26th!

We are a community theater group, run by volunteers.

Over the years we’ve done a huge range of shows, everything from Broadway musicals to Brecht. We’ve done full-length plays and evenings of original one-acts and produced events that focus on community building and performance such as our annual Harvest Fair (a fall fair on our town green, with a full day of live entertainment, arts and crafts, food, a flower show, children’s activities, and a lot more) which has been a tradition on the first weekend after Labor Day since 1987.

One of our goals is to share our love of theater

We invite you to see one of our shows, attend one of our events, or join us on-stage or off to experience the magic of community theater.


Our currently planned events for 2018 are as follows:

  • Spring show, Gotta Dance! Gotta Sing!, May 11th and 12th
  • Performing Arts Camp for Kids, August 6-10
  • Harvest Fair, Sept. 8th
  • Fall Show, The Singing Master, Oct. 26, 27, 28 and Nov. 2 & 3 -- an original play with music by Dick and Dorothy Robson
  • Night Before the Night Before Christmas benefit performance, Dec. 23rd

There will be other play readings set up on a monthly basis. We'd love to see you!
