Future call for Submissions – 
     Extended Holiday Meshugas

We’re also planning to present Extended Holiday Meshugas in December of 2020. This is not yet an official call for submissions. We’re sending this out as an encouragement to all who wish to write for Extended Holiday Meshugas in 2020. We invite you to spend time while experiencing the  Holidays to observe as a writer, think like a writer, steal special moments (like all good writers do), so that we will have a collection of excellent new scripts to present to our audiences next year.  As in past years, we consider all holidays from all traditions that occur beginning around Thanksgiving and running through Epiphany (January 6) as part of Holiday Meshugas.
