Submit a Proposal for 2019-20
Asheville Community Theatre is seeking proposals for plays for 35below, our 40 seat black box theatre. Proposals will be accepted through May 15, 2019 and notifications will be made by June 1, 2019.
This year, ACT is offering two choices for proposals:
• To be considered for the 35below Season: 9 performances over 3 weekends in 35below
• To be considered for the Artistic Horizons Season: 3 performances over 1 weekend in 35below
A note on proposals:
• Shows with small casts (think 6 or less) and light scenic needs work best in 35below.
• Producers are strongly encouraged to consider scripts that offer a diversity of voices, perspectives, and experiences; scripts by women and/or people of color; and scripts that illuminate contemporary issues.
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.
