OnStage!festival, a new Festival of American Theater seeks full productions

web site

Submission deadline is April 15th

KIT Italia, The International Theatre and KIT - Kairos ItalyTheater have announced the launch of OnStage!festival, a new Festival of American Theater in Rome, Italy. The first edition of the festival will run January 21st – 27th 2019, featuring a selection of the best American independent theater taking the stage in the Italian capital, in a brand new theater in the heart of Rome. Submissions are now open for its main “Shows” category. The deadline is April 15th, 2018.

OnStage! follows in the successful footsteps of In Scena! Italian Theater Festival NY, and mirrors it across the ocean.

OnStage!festival will host fully staged productions of American shows – in English with Italian supertitles – readings of plays by US-based playwrights in translation, and the OnStage! Playwriting Award. The calendar will also include special events, panels, lectures and master classes to foster the festival’s overall mission of creating a cultural bridge and a meeting point between artists in the United States and Italy.

Submissions are now open for the “Shows” category. This is the main festival category, which will showcase fully staged productions that have been previously mounted in the United States for at least one professional production, but never in Italy. Full productions of any and all theatrical genres may apply – including new plays, musicals, adaptations, revivals, devised and experimental work. Participants will be self-producing. There are no submission fees and no participation fees.

The submission deadline for this category is April 15th, 2018.

Submissions for both categories are open to all artists who live and work in the United States, and whose work is primarily in English.
