Solofest 2019 (LA) seeks solo shows

web site

If you have a solo show, you can submit it for consideration for Solofest 2019.

Deadline for submissions is December 1, 2018.

Solofest is a festival of one person shows, or solo theatre, that is a celebration of the solo journey, not a competition. We do a completely different show every day during January February and the first part of March going on for seven years now.

It's grown into the largest solo theatre festival on the West Coast. This year will be doing 60 shows in 70 days!

We are looking for all types of solo theater. But we do need to have it ready and written and approximately 60 to 80 minutes in length.

The Secret Theater’s Flying Solo Festival
Festival Dates: March 9th – 18th


READ THIS FIRST: We can accept all shows from short 10- 20 minute shows that are being workshopped to a 60+ minute finished piece. We will consider previously produced shows if you believe that you will attract an audience. Our criteria are 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.
NYCPLAYWRIGHTS NOTE: there is a $50 tech fee
• 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 previously produced if we feel its gonna be hard to get an audience.
• 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 $150 CASH PRIZE to the audience vote winner.
• 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! Sellout and you'll make $791… hey then if you win add $150 that’s $941 for one nights work!
• We provide a tech/lighting designer/Board op for your run although you are welcome to have your own tech or SM do this.
• We will accept shows that have already appeared in Flying Solo if you and we both feel that it will find an audience.
• 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. There is a $50 tech fee. This money pays for a dedicated lighting designer for tech and for an SM/Board Op


• We accept all shows from 10 minutes to 60 minutes
• Finished 60-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-hour tech per show. You should provide a tech script in advance to help you maximize this time.
• 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.
• Tech rehearsals are held during the day and evenings from March 6th – 8th.
