Call for Submissions for Eastern Front’s Stages Theatre Festival
Eastern Front Theatre is pleased to announce a call for submissions for the 23rd annual Stages Theatre Festival, Atlantic Canada’s Professional Touring Theatre Festival. Dates for the Festival are June 15-26, 2016. Productions will be staged at various venues around Halifax, NS. Stages will feature accessible, innovative, and entertaining contemporary theatre from the Atlantic provinces and across the country. There are two categories in which to submit proposals:
Stages: Productions aimed at an adult audience, with a maximum running time of 75 minutes.
Next Stages: Productions aimed at a family audience, with a maximum running time of 60 minutes.
We will consider traditional theatre productions, site specific pieces, installation pieces, and works at various stages of development.
All shows run in repertory so preference will be given to shows which have short turnaround times.
Preference will be given to shows that are written by Atlantic Canadian artists or tell Atlantic Canadian stories.
Proposals will be accepted electronically or through regular mail, but must be received by November 16, 2015.
Please submit the following:
· A one page proposal describing planned or existing production
· A list of participating artists, CV’s of key artists
· A script sample or completed script
· Any related reviews of your work
· A video recording, if possible
Please send applications to:
