If you live in Fredericton and you are looking to get involved with the theatre scene, Theatre St. Thomas is hosting the AOK Theatre Festival. All proceeds go to Fredericton homeless shelters. The deadline is Dec 31st, here's the info below!
Theatre St. Thomas presents Acts of Kindness Theatre Festival: A Fundraiser for the Fredericton Homeless Shelters.
We are proud to announce an evening of one act script readings held in association with Fredericton Homeless Shelters Inc; an invaluable organization which offers housing and care to members of our community when they need it most. We are looking for writers, directors and actors who would like to help produce meaningful pieces of theatre that will debut together at 7:30 p.m, March 22nd, 2019 in the Black Box Theatre.
WRITERS: Interested applicants are to submit any original script that features no more than five characters and that run 20-30 minutes. Each of the three winners selected will benefit from a talk back after the readings. Important: your full name and contact information should appear ONLY on the cover page of your script. The script itself should not contain any reference to your name in order to ensure a blind judging process. A character list should follow your script’s title page. The deadline for script submissions is FEBRUARY 14th.
DIRECTORS: Chosen applicants will be given the opportunity to develop their directing abilities. They will work with event coordinators to read through a portion of all submitted scripts, then judge and ultimately select the winning scripts. They will be similarly involved in the casting process. The position of Director will require the individual to read multiple script submissions and lead two rehearsals before the event itself. Interested applicants must submit a one page letter of intent which outlines their experience and interest in directing. The deadline for director applications is DECEMBER 31st.
ACTORS: Selected actors will be featured in one of the selected playscripts. This is a great opportunity to get acting experience without having to make a large time commitment. Potential actors should submit a one page letter of intent including past acting experience and why they would like to participate in the festival. Certain applicants may be asked to submit voice recordings during the casting process. The deadline for actor applications is DECEMBER 31st.
Please submit all applications or questions about the event to AOKFest2019@gmail.com.
If you aren't interested in applying to participate in the festival we hope to see you on the evening of March 22nd!
