web site

Festival Dates: Oct 28th - Nov 1 , 2015

Call for Submissions for Flying Solo 3!

APPLY HERE: Flying Solo 3 Application

READ THIS FIRST : We can accept all shows from short 10- 20 shows that are workshopping to fully fledged 60minute finished pieces. We will consider previously produced shows if you believe that you will attract an audience. Our criteria is that the show is good and deserves a platform.

What is Flying Solo?
Flying Solo is a festival of solo shows that doesn't charge participation or submissions fees. That's right - NO FEE - Cheaper and better than the rest. Seriously.

Flying Solo doesn't ask for any rights, royalties or residual payments
Flying Solo is presented in the Secret Theatre's 99 seat house.
We can accept shows that have premiered or even in workshop mode - apply first and we'll talk. We'll only refuse a show that has prior if we both feel its gonna be hard to get an audience. [for us and you this is not a good scene!]
Preferential consideration given to students of Go Solo or Flying Solo alumni
If your show is 'on book' or very short [20 mins or less] you may be invited to participate in a showcase show of multiple shows. If your show is 30 - 60 mins then you will either be asked to do a stand-alone or a double bill.
Flying Solo presents a $250 CASH PRIZE to the audience vote winner along with a tacky award.
In addition to the CASH PRIZE! there will be a door split too at 50/50% after the first 11 tickets! Therefore if we sell 40 tickets you will make $260! If we sell 60 tickets you make $440! not bad huh?
Sellout and you'll make $791 hey then if you win add $250 thats $1041 freakin dollars boy! We won't add the tacky award to this since it has no value whatsoever APART FROM BRAGGING RIGHTS! 

All from one Show??? You bet your sweet aspercreme!
Plus we provide a tech/lighting designer/Board op for your run!
Lastly we would accept shows that have already appeared in Flying Solo if you and we both feel that it will find an audience.
We have already received submissions! What are you waiting for? To be discovered?!? That can happen at the Secret!

No fee to submit or produce.

We supply all the basic production elements needed to support a new work – a stage, a small crew, box office and lobby staff, great sound and lights.

You supply a great show and invite audience members
$250 Cash Prize for Best Show


We accept all shows from 10 minutes to 6o minutes
Finished 6o minute shows are offered either a stand alone or double bill slot. Shows of longer than 30 and not more than 60 minute get one hours tech per show.
Short shows of 20 mins or less are accepted but will be presented as part of a multi-show showcase. Up to 6 shows but tech requirements must be minimal due to the between show change over.
