Artists’ Choice Series
at Ohio Shakespeare Festival
The purpose of this series is to allow fellow NE Ohio directors, playwrights, and designers an outlet for creative exploration at Ohio Shakespeare Festival. We encourage theatre artists to submit for consideration a play to produce for a limited run on the Henry C. Bishop Stage.
We specifically seek exciting newer works, perhaps those not typically seen in the Ohio Shakes subscription series. Yet, all submissions must in some way tie into the tradition of classic theatre and/or storytelling, whether in theme, content, design, or interpretation. In short, while this project should be a daring and outside-the-box production for Ohio Shakespeare Festival, it should still fit our mission statement: to put excellent storytelling at the forefront of all we do.
The performances will take place on November 3 and 4, 2017, 8:00pm. Rehearsals can begin no earlier than October 2. You will submit a proposed rehearsal schedule, but be prepared to work around the needs of the MainStage productions.
Submissions are due August 1, 2017.
