Do you keep your dramatic side a secret? Is there a seed for a dramatic work bouncing around in your head?
Participation in the Fringe Festival is an opportunity for you to develop your work in a competitive, but encouraging, environment with an in-built audience. Fringe Festival staff will guide you through the six-month producing process, allowing you to develop your own skills. It’s a chance for you to get feedback from audiences and other artists, and earn a majority share of ticket revenue.
Here’s the key information: The early bird application deadline is November 8, 5 p.m. EST and regular applications entries are accepted until January 11, 2019 at 5 p.m. EST.
The Fringe Festival will commission and produce work that explores key issues currently facing humanity: Forgiveness, trust and how time can either unearth or leave covered progress. Curated Series Proposals can be contemporary, classical, whimsical or abstract. Up to four selected works ranging from theatre to dance will be fully developed and presented in repertory, receiving 5 – 7 performances during the Capital Fringe Festival, July 2019 in Washington, DC at Arena Stage, the Mead Center for American Theater.
