As part of its ongoing commitment to diversity, NBCUniversal will produce a live performance Scene Showcase in June in Los Angeles, and September in New York City. The showcase intends to feature actors, writers and directors of diverse backgrounds, including LGBTQ actors and Performers with Disabilities. The one-day live theatrical showcase is performed for executives, producers, casting directors, and other industry professionals.

**The NY Scene Showcase casting call for actors is OPEN. See details below.**

**The LA Scene Showcase casting call for actors is CLOSED**

**2016 Scene Showcase scene submissions from writers are CLOSED**



Stage One:  Script Selection (Writers)

Once a year, we put out an open call for scripts to be performed live in front of an audience.
We accept two types of scripts: comedy scenes and dramatic monologues.


  • There should be no more than two actors in the scene (and no less).
  • The scene should be five minutes long (4-6 pages, standard script format).
  • The piece should be stand-alone; it shouldn’t feel like an excerpt from a longer piece, and should have a clear beginning, middle, and end.
  • Given that these scenes are meant to be performed on a stage in front of a live audience, special effects should be kept to a minimum.


  • As it is a monologue, it should be written for ONE actor.
  • The monologue should be 1-2 minutes long.
  • The piece should be able to stand alone.


Stage Two: Casting (Actors)

**The NY Scene Showcase casting call is OPEN.**

Actors should prepare a self-taped audition, reading part of one of our selected scenes. Instructions to submit are below:

**SUBMIT HERE: actorscall.com/f983d**

NOTE: Any gender, age or relationship can be modified for audition purposes, to suit you, as long as the humor is still maintained. i.e.: If the scene is currently written as a male character, you can choose to portray it as a female. If written as a husband, you can portray it as a wife, straight to gay, 20s to 50s, etc.

Please note: Registration on actorsaccess.com is free, but Actors Access charges $3 to upload a video.


Stage Three: Rehearsals (Directors & Actors)

Once we cast actors, we will hire directors.  They are typically selected from our pool of directors from the NBCUniversal Emerging Director Programfinalists and award-winning NBCUniversal Short Film Festival directors.

Stage Four: Showcase

A live theatrical showcase will take place once in Los Angeles, and once in New York.  These two showcases have separate casts and directors.
