THEATRE PRODUCTION- This application form is for your playwrights or your students that are currently rehearsing a student-written one act play. Students can submit their work for either a full production or workshop reading. DUE MARCH 17, 2014
PERFORMANCE CREATION ENSEMBLE– This is a new program for 2014 and we are very excited about it. As part of the festival, I will be assembling and leading a high school creation ensemble which will showcase their final performance as part of Nextfest 2014. The creation ensemble will meet twice a week (Tuesday evenings and Saturday afternoons) and will be made up of 8-16 high school students who display an ability to act, an additional creative skill (writing, composing, choreography, visual design) and the ability to work in an ensemble. Applications to audition for the performance ensemble are DUE MARCH 17, 2014.
