Playground: Festival of New Work

 

From June 6-10, 2018, Playground: Festival of New Works will feature short medium works/excerpts by emerging artists from the Waterloo Region and surrounding area. Playground is a new festival that is taking the place of the beloved regional ACTOne Play Festival.

Submissions are now being accepted from all theatre and performance creators looking to present their fresh concepts on the stage. Whether your project is performance ready, or needs some shaping to come off the page and be experienced by an audience, whether it is text based or a performance experiment, Playground is a new theatre community platform where you can present your next exciting idea.

We love to work with first timers, as much as we enjoy supporting all emerging and established artists. By submitting to our festival, you will join a community of local theatre and performance makers. Our invitation extends to musicians, choreographers, designers, filmmakers, animators, and new media artists who are looking for opportunities to present in harmony with theatre and performance arts. Our festival team is looking to adapt as best as possible to your creation needs, and is willing to look for opportunities to support works outside of the traditional theatre setting. Please join us, especially if what excites you most is the chance to workshop and produce at the region’s most popular venue: The Registry Theatre!

In the spirit of ‘playing’ and ‘grounding’, we are recruiting short medium projects that deliver brevity of storytelling, and where our available resources can best compliment the work. We ask that you submit a maximum 20-page excerpt or project proposal. Please note that all submissions need to be at least at the ‘first-draft’ stage, and by no means need to be polished. All works that are accepted into our festival will have access to technical and creative support from the festival team for revisions and development in the months leading up to the festival.

Electronic submissions are highly encouraged and can be sent via email to info@registrytheatre.com; please include your name and contact information with your submission.

Deadline for submissions is November 17, 2017. If you have any questions, you can contact Sam Varteniuk, Artistic Director at 519-745-6565 x 1.

Our official call for directors, stage managers, designers, and performers will be released separately – please feel free to express your interest in these opportunities with your submission.

We look forward to hearing from you!
