SOCK ‘N’ BUSKIN THEATRE COMPANY – CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Sock ‘n’ Buskin Theatre Company is currently planning it’s 2014-2015 season and we are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated individuals to help us make this season the best it can be. Aspiring and established directors alike are encouraged to submit proposals for this year’s shows.
This year, we will primarily be looking to produce a number of small student created productions and site-specific productions to be performed in various smaller venues on and off campus. This would be an ideal outlet for first-time writers, directors, actors and production crew; however we will still accept and consider proposals by experienced and established artists. Original pieces are preferred for this category, but all proposals will be considered.
Although this season will focus more on smaller and more site-specific productions, we will still be accepting proposals for main stage shows. In the past, Sock ‘n’ Buskin has produced a wide range of material, from Shakespeare, to contemporary Canadian plays, to large scale musicals. When crafting a proposal, directors should consider the intended audience for their show, as well as how their show will be promoted.
We will also be accepting proposals for our first “Shakespeare in the Park” production, that will ideally be presented mid-October, with auditions occurring in the second week of September. The selected show will be performed in the performance space beside Loeb Building on Carleton’s campus.
A successful proposal will include the following:
- Director’s name and contact information
- Resume of previous theatre experience
- Name of play/music and playwright/composer
- Tentative production plans
- Production timeline, set, cast size, costumes, props, lighting.
- A copy of the script (or where we may access one.)
- A rough estimate of production expenses.
Since we receive our funding from the Carleton University community, please note that it is required that three quarters of the cast/crew/production team be Carleton University students.
The deadline for submissions for main stage and “Shakespeare in the Park” proposals is MAY 1st, 2014. The deadline for submitting proposals for student-created and site-specific productions will be MAY 31st, 2014.
Please submit an electronic copy of your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any further questions, please email us, or visit our website at www.snbtheatre.com.
We look forward to reading your submissions!
