PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION BELOW if you are interested in pitching a production to us. ANYONE can pitch to us but there is a lot here that you need to know!
SUNDOWN COLLABORATIVE THEATRE PRESENTS… OPEN CALL FOR SEASON 8 SUBMISSIONS Sundown is looking for shows to produce for SEASON 8. We are a small company that requires collaboration and a "hands on"/"can do" attitude from everyone involved at every step of the production process. Whether you are submitting a script published by another author or have written the script yourself, your involvement will not end with Sundown's selection of the show. If you want us to produce your show, you have to be willing to be fully invested and involved. There are many forms this kind of involvement can take, such as taking on the role of director or designer for the show or helping publicize the performances. We believe strongly in choosing pieces that reflect our mission statement, so please read over it below and feel free to explore our website or talk to our members for more information about our company. However, we encourage scripts/productions of all kinds, so be creative!
JANUARY 4: Written Submissions Due (by 3:00pm) - Fill out the form to the best of your ability; explain if you are unable to answer any questions. - Include an online/emailable version of your script. We no longer accept physical copies; if you need help scanning, contact us and one of our members may be able to help you.
JANUARY 18: Oral Presentations Due (12:00pm, 1828 Westchester in Denton) - After we've read the plays, we expect the show to be pitched to us. You will be asked to attend the Sundown meeting on January 18 in order to convince us to choose your show. After all submissions are received, you will get an email to schedule your allotted time. - In a 5 minute presentation, please provide the following information to the best of your ability: synopsis (try to keep it to 3-5 sentences since we will have read the script), concept/conceptual ideas, possible approaches to any major technical issues, budget (be aware that we are a small-scale company), why YOU want to do it, and why you think the play works for Sundown. - We are more likely to accept shows that have directors attached to them, but we always welcome any potential ideas that fit our aesthetic!
If you have any questions, contact us at 940-220-9302 for more information.
Our Mission: Sundown Collaborative Theatre strives to produce plays as holistic pieces of art that evolve from a collaborative process. We want to explore contemporary and classical theatre along with poetry, music, and dance to present innovative performances. By truly working as a collective of artists and utilizing all of our individual abilities, we believe we can create shows that are relevant to who we are both artistically and personally. The visceral experience of a Sundown Collaborative Theatre production should impact audiences by provoking thought and inciting discussion.
