Eclectic Evening of Short Works

web site

Artistic New Directions, Janice L. Goldberg, Kristine Niven, Artistic
Co-Directors, is accepting submissions for our fourth annual Eclectic Evening of
Short Works in March. We will accept a maximum of 12 short plays which
will be performed as two complete evenings running in alternating rep as
part of our AND Onstage Program at Theatre 54 at Shetler Studios, 244 W. 54th
We are looking for short (5 – 15 minutes) complete pieces, premieres
encouraged. Pieces can be in the form of a play, sketch, clown, musical or
other eclectic form, excluding solo pieces (AND presents Solo Works in our Fall
Solo Works-in-Progress). Only one application per person. We will not
accept applications via our website.
Accepted material will be fully in produced form, (think FringeNYC) i.e.
staged, off book, with lights and sound and with simple sets, the key word
being simple. Theatre 54 is a 60 seat black box. There is minimal storage
at the theater. There is a piano available. This will be an Equity
Inclusive dates are – March 21 – April 3.
Monday March 21 and Tuesday March 22 load in / tech.
Performances: March 23 – April 3. (Two complete separate evenings running
in alternating rep) Wednesday-Saturday @ 8pm, Sunday-Tuesday @ 7pm,
Saturday & Sunday matinees @ 2pm.
Casts must be available for all dates. Each show will perform 7 times +
dress. You must identify one person from your project (e.g., the director,
the playwright, the producer) as liaison for the project to Artistic New
Directions. This designated person will be responsible for communications
between your project and AND.
There will be a mandatory production meeting on Sunday, February 27 at 5
PM at Shetler Studios. Either the director, the playwright, or the producer
of your piece must attend.
Please download the application form at the end of this notice and email
the completed application including the script (or what serves as the script)
to _ANDJanice@aol.com
_ (mailto:ANDJanice@aol.com
) . All scripts must be
accompanied by the application below. Scripts and applications must be
submitted in Word, Excel, RTF, PDF, or Final Draft. Scripts must be in proper
script form. The application can also be found at the bottom of this
document in case you can’t open the attachment.
Deadline for submissions is February 10, 2011. Notification will be given
by February 24.
Artistic New Directions will provide the performance venue, technical and
production support, and marketing for the Eclectic Evening. We cannot
provide rehearsal space.
The originator of an accepted piece is responsible for delivering the
finished piece, of overseeing his/her/their own show, including rehearsals,
performers and director and with minimal technical elements. Again, think
Fringe Festival. Proof of rights will be needed. Artistic New Directions
will facilitate wherever possible.
Pieces can be brought into Anything Goes (our ongoing Wednesday labs) for
rehearsal and feedback between now and then. In fact, we encourage that.
