For any scripts that contain a musical score or specific music instructions.
Frequently Asked Questions
The Stage Ready program allows playwrights to submit scripts that have not been published or produced to be sold and distributed. Scripts are sold digitally or in hard copy through the Canadian Play Outlet (CPO). If your script has not received a professional production, it will be put into the Stage Ready program, and it won’t receive an ISBN. Once your play has a professional production, it will then be moved into the Copyscript program, and it will receive an ISBN at that time.
Once a script is received it can take up to two weeks to process.
Stage Ready scripts are sold for $14.00 (plus tax) unless the playwright requests the script be sold for a different amount. Playwrights receive a 25% royalty from the scripts sold. At PGC’s fiscal year’s end (March/April), the script sales are tallied up, and if the royalty amount is $20 or more, a payment will be sent out to the playwright. If the royalties accumulated are under $20, then that amount will “roll over” into the next year. This continues until the playwright has reached a payout of at least $20.
