About the Artistic Horizons Season

Asheville Community Theatre is launching Artistic Horizons, a new program in the 35below space. Artistic Horizons is a program that gives local artists the opportunity to pursue new creative paths in the theatre. The 2019-20 Artistic Horizons Season will consist of 3 shows performed in 35below; each of these 3 shows will receive 3 performances over 1 weekend.

ACT is seeking applicants to propose a show to be presented as a part of the inaugural Artistic Horizons program. Specifically, ACT is looking for new or emerging artists, writers who are expanding their craft to include playwriting, or first time directors who want to workshop a piece before committing to a full performance run. ACT seeks a diversity of voices, perspectives, and experiences; scripts by women and/or people of color; and scripts that illuminate contemporary issues

Applicants should be the playwright and/or the director of the proposed show.
