Jump Start - Palace Theatre, Redditch FRIDAY 18th MAY 7.45pm

Jump Start are looking for submissions for the next showcase performance event in the Studio at the Palace Theatre on 18th May. Jump Start is an initiative run by Worcestershire Arts Partnership to provide opportunities for new theatre works to be performed. 

We are looking for:

New theatre work that has not previously been performed 

Work that is 10 - 15 minutes long 

Work that is low-tech and does not require any get-in or get-out time 

Work that is rehearsed and ‘off-script'

Ideally, work from Worcestershire-based practitioners. We are particularly interested in hearing from writers based in or near Redditch.

We can also provide an opportunity for writers to link with directors & actors so don’t worry if you have a text or an idea but no company!

Submissions (either an outline of the work or a script) should be made by email to LEE FARLEY at  lee@perfectcircletheatre.com by FRIDAY 9th FEBRUARY. We will then select 4-5 submissions and  invite people to a meeting where writers, practitioners & actors can link up and start rehearsing. The performance night will be FRIDAY 18TH MAY at Palace Theatre, Redditch. There may be some rehearsal space available at the Palace, but generally each group will be expected to rehearse independently and to sort out their own space & timings. 

The 4-5 selected submissions will receive £400 towards the production on receipt of a signed contract.

If you’re an actor / director who’s interested in the project, please drop Lee a line and he'll keep you up to speed with the meeting date.

PLEASE pass this message onto your networks & anyone who might be interested.
