The Advance Theatre Festival showcases dramatic readings of five new plays written and directed by female-identifying and gender non-conforming IBPOC playwrights and directors.

If you are a playwright and your play is chosen to participate in the Advance Theatre Festival, Ruby Slippers Theatre in partnership with The Shadbolt Centre for the Arts will cover the costs of all rehearsals prior to the day of the reading, your technical rehearsal, promotion, theatrical venue, and all artists’ fees.

If you are a director who wishes to participate, send us your resume and cover letter for consideration.

The 2022/23 Advance Theatre Festival will take place in February of 2023, dates TBA.

This is a curated process. Priority will be given to inclusivity; all cultural backgrounds, orientations, identities, abilities, and ages.
