Playing space sizes vary from venue to venue, regardless of capacity. Based solely on the amount of space you need and no other technical parameters, select all dimensions below that could theoretically accommodate your production. * 12' x 10' 15' x 12' 20' x 15' I'd prefer/need a playing space larger than 20' X 15' You are not guaranteed a playing space of these specific sizes, should you be accepted. 2. Does your production contain any Imperative Stage Conditions? (e.g. You MUST have a crossover, you NEED 15' of overhead clearance, etc.) Even if you think it's something "any theater would have," be sure to mention it here...these aren't just any theaters. 3. Will you require THEATRICAL LIGHTING for your production? * Yes, and I would require the Festival's equipment. Yes, but I would provide some or all of my own equipment. No, my show will not use theatrical lighting. I am unsure at this time. We outfit ALL venues with a basic lighting plot, but it never hurts to ask. If YES, please detail your Lighting needs and/or cues. We always love to know what folks are planning for. 4. Will you require a SOUND SYSTEM for your production? * Yes, and I would require the Festival's equipment. Yes, but I would provide some or all of my own equipment.

PLEASE NOTE AGAIN: You WILL be required to provide your own playback device. 5. Will you be using PROJECTIONS/VIDEO in your production? * Yes, and I would require the Festival's equipment. Yes, but I would provide some or all of my own equipment. No, my show would not use Projections/Video. I am unsure at this time. We do NOT outfit all venues with projectors automatically. If you select No or Unsure, you may be unable to add this content to your production unless you are providing your own equipment. If YES, please detail your Projection/Video Needs. 6. Please detail the approximate square footage of storage space needed for props, costumes, etc. Also feel free to detail items you'd prefer on-site storage for. Please do try and be as accurate as possible. Some venues feature little on-site storage. 7. Anything else regarding the Technical Elements of your production you'd like to let us know about? Go on! Tell us everything! 😀 SECTION FIVE:AVAILABILITY We know it can be tough this early on to predict the exact dates and times you'll be available, but we need to know at least how many days overall you intend to be here, along with your Venue Capacity preferences, as those two factors determine your eligibility and what your maximum number of performances would be.
