The Detroit Fringe Theater Festival, to be held September 17-20 in Detroit, is now accepting submissions!
We will be accepting proposals of performances and scripts that are appropriate for any of the following categories: Pop Culture, Experimental, Drama, Musical, Comedy, Family Friendly, and Satire. Performances can be staged plays, poetry/spoken word, music, and any other style of performance that expands ideas about what the theatrical experience is and can be.
Pieces that have been performed elsewhere are eligible and encouraged to submit as long as the piece is unpublished and/or rights are secured by the party submitting. The festival is also open to experimental interpretations of the classics or other pieces in the public domain.
On the final evening of the festival one performance will be given a Best of Show award (determined by a Detroit Fringe panel) and another an Audience Favorite award (determined by public voting). These two performances will each receive a portion of the festival’s ticket sales.
Performances will be held at the CMAP Detroit space (Carrie Morris Arts Production), 2221 Carpenter Street. Festival line-up and schedule can be found at www.Facebook.com/DetroitFringe.
To apply: Go to the following link to access the Detroit Fringe Theater Festival submission form - http://goo.gl/q6vPrg. Submissions are due by Wednesday, August 19th and participants will be notified by end of day Monday, August 24th. Festival tech provisions are minimal (basic light and sound will be provided) and performances will have the option to be staged either indoors or outside in the lots directly adjacent to the venue. Load in and tech time in the space will be scheduled the week prior to the festival and will be based on twice the duration of your performance (if your performance is 90 minutes long you will be scheduled for 180 minutes of load in and tech time.) And that’s it! SO GO ON AND GET TO YOUR SUBMISSION!
Please note that playwrights and performing artists must provide their own transportation to and lodging in Detroit. The performance space is provided free of cost courtesy of CMAP (Carrie Morris Artists Productions).
