Script Discount

Discount Script Purchasing Service.

Order Information Sheet 2018

How the scheme works:

SCDA operates a script ordering scheme which has now been expanded to provide members and member clubs with discounts on orders placed with a wide range of publishers: Samuel French (discount given on all stock titles not just scripts); Cressrelles; Oberon Books; Amber Lane Press; Stagescripts; Plays for Adults (Playstage Senior) and Pantomime Pantomime (for this company only, please order direct from and quote SCDA member and the password “Stirling” to obtain your discount. You do not need to complete an order form for orders placed here.)

Discounts range, depending on publisher and title, between 15-35% per script. Contact HQ for a quote for specific titles and publishers

NB Many scripts are now “print on demand” which means no printed copies are kept in stock but are printed as required. This can lead to longer lead times so please make sure your order your scripts in plenty of time.

  • To obtain your discount, you must order via HQ. Discounts will not be given on titles ordered direct from publishers except for “Pantomime Pantomime” (see above)
  • Orders must be placed using this order form and the form must be returned to HQ by post or email attachment.
  • Please use a separate order form for each title (NB: all orders placed at the same time by a club will be counted as one order irrespective of publisher.)
  • Orders with all publishers are placed on the day they are received (or the first working day after).
  • SCDA will charge clubs an admin fee equivalent to 35% of the sum discount given (maximum of £50 per total order) to cover costs. (For example: Total order value = £165, Total discount given by publishers @ 30% = £49.50, SCDA admin fee = £17.32, discount passed to club = £32.18)
  • Clubs will be charged postage on their orders unless they opt to collect orders from HQ by arrangement during normal opening hours.
  • Clubs will be invoiced for their order by SCDA.
  • Terms of payment for SCDA invoices are 14 days from date of invoice.
  • Orders cannot be cancelled once placed with publisher.
