Call for Submissions (Edmonton): Nextfest 2023 Theatre Submissions – The Nextfest Arts Company

The Nextfest Arts Company is delighted to post our submission calls for Theatre (both Scripts and Project Pitches).

Are you an emerging artist looking to produce a project at Nextfest 2023 (June 1-11, 2023)? The Nextfest Arts Company produces new plays and projects by emerging playwrights and theatre artists as part our eleven day festival.

NEXTFEST 2023 takes place in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. Nextfest works on a presentation model similar to the Fringe Festival. Projects are chosen and curated within the festival run but the project itself is lead by a producer who oversees the content and creation of the project as well as all artists associated with the project and all design elements such as set, costumes, etc.

Please visit: https://nextfest.ca/theatre-call-for-submissions/ to fill out a submission form.
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 20, 2023 at 11:59 pm
