WHY WE ARE THE BEST FESTIVAL

WELCOME TO OUR FESTIVAL
In our festivals we strongly believe that self-producing is a magic wand that feeds the core of your art and creativity.
Whether you are a first time playwright, a first time self-producer, or an experience artist, you will agree that the first and most important thing you need to obtain when you stage your play is a beautiful and rich Venue, and that is what we offer.
You need to know why you will pay your participation’s fee:
We rent a great venue. Venues like the one we rent costs 2 or 3 times more than the small black box theaters offered by all of the other festivals in the city.
THIS SINGLE FACTOR ALONE WILL MAKE YOU FEEL PROUD WHEN YOU INVITE YOUR FAMILY, FRIEND AND INDUSTRY COLLEAGUES TO YOUR SHOW.
This is why you pay the participation’s fee!
What other festival offers you the use 74 set props/furniture in their storage for free?
Where else you get unlimited storage for your props and sets the length of your run including space for your costumes?
Where else you get a lighting plot of 94 lights, complete with gel and LED lights that can flush a full range of deep color to your scenes.
…And a large and real dressing room with mirrors, a sink inside, and a clean and functional bathroom next to the dressing room and inside the theater.
This is an other reason why you pay the participation’s fee!
No other festivals will offer you a stage like the one we build for you – 29’x22′ feel free to check!
OUR STAGE HAS:
A backstage walk through between stage left and right (so important)
A back stage room stage right and left
Plenty of storage for your props and sets behind the backstage.
Two projectors that project a back stage image of 21×12′ and a side stage right image of 12×8′.
We build two extremely solid walls stage left and right with a door so you don’t have to walk through a curtain to enter and exit (or see a cheap brick walls as a surrounding decor). You can hang what you like from those walls and bang against it with as much force as you want and they won’t budge. 1/16″
Stage dimensions = 29’ x 22′ (DO YOU KNOW WHT THIS IS? IT IS THE AVERAGE SIZE OF 2 BEDROOM APT IN MANHATTAN)
This is an other reason why you pay the participation’s fee!
No other festival offers a tech as long as ours.
DO YOU KNOW HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO HAVE 5 HOURS IN THE THEATER TO TECH YOUR SHOW FOR FREE INSTEAD OF THE 45 MINUTES OR AT MOST 1.5 HOUR THAT ALL OTHER FESTIVALS OFFER YOU? IT TAKES AT LEAST 1 HOUR TO RUN SOUND AND LIGHT CUES – SO WHAT DO YOU ACCOMPLISH IN YOUR TECH IS JUST 1 HOUR? – ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!  AND, THE RISK THAT YOUR SHOW WILL LOOK MISERABLE DURING YOUR RUN IS VERY HIGH WHEN YOU HAVE NOT ENOUGH TIME TO PREPARE ONSTAGE.
When other festivals advise you: “Please keep it simple and use minimum props and setting”, they are basically advising you to have your play look like all other plays – a high school play setting made up of only 2 BEAT UP cubes and 1 chair.
Don’t get us wrong, some people can produce incredible shows with nothing on stage….but just know that according to our lengthy experience, that is rare.
WE SAY MAKE IT BIG AND ELABORATE IF YOU NEED TO OR LIKE, WE WILL HELP YOU WITH THAT, SO YOUR SHOW WILL LOOK ABSOLUTELY STUNNING AND UNIQUE
This is an other reason why you pay the participation’s fee!
Then what is more important then advertising your show using the Festival’s website?
Just go and look these websites and what they offer you – miserable descriptions, a thumbnail of a poster. That is not the way for you to spark, just come a visit the Post/Page we created for our past productions. WE ARE PROUD TO OFFER YOU NOTHING ELSE THEN THE BEST. You can use the post we create for your like your free and personalized website.
That is an other reason why you pay the participation’s fee!
PRIZES:
We offer up to $7,000 in Prizes. Can you find another festival that gives away that much?
Do you know how much work it takes to set up our festival?
Building walls stage right and left, back stage canvasses for projection, storing all year around all the props we offer, which we need a full 26′ long truck to be transported every time in and out of the theater. We repair and repaint all of the props all year around.
It is at times exhausting and overwhelming – but – THERE IS NOTHING ELSE MORE THRILLING THAN SERVING OUR PLAYWRIGHTS WHEN THEY ARRIVE.
LAST AND NOT LEAST YOU WILL BE TREATED WITH THE LOVE AND RESPECT YOU DESERVE, AS A WRITER AND AS AN ARTIST, AND YOUR WORK WILL BE HIGHLY APPRECIATED.
See you soon!
