Jump Start theatre - CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

 Jump Start is an initiative run by Worcestershire Arts Partnership to provide opportunities for new theatre works to be performed. This will be our third event and we are excited about the project’s progress  - more people are being engaged and we’re so pleased to be working with so many local theatre makers.


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 Ideally, work from Worcestershire-based practitioners Ideally, work that is learnt, not “script-in-hand"


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 me by FRIDAY 21st AUGUST. We will then invite a maximum of 6 people to a meeting in early September where writers, practitioners & actors can link up and start rehearsing. The performance night will be SUNDAY 4th OCTOBER 7pm at Worcester University. There may be some rehearsal space available at the University, but generally each group will be expected to rehearse independently and to sort out their own space & timings.


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


There are no fees available for any practitioners, directors or performers - this is a volunteer-led project which aims to provide an opportunity to showcase new work. An audience will be invited to the performance night to offer feedback and ideas.


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


Thanks everyone, please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to receiving your submissions!
