About the SheATL Summer Theater Festival
What is a Theater Festival?
The typical theater festival is an opportunity for playwrights to self-produce their work in full onstage, for a paying audience. Festivals have multiple shows which all share resources (like the theater itself, front-of-house staff and supplies, and technical equipment), making the process far less expensive for everyone than producing your show in full on your own. If you’ve done readings already and feel like you’re ready to take the next step of seeing your piece fully staged, a festival is probably the right fit for you!
What’s the Festival Timeline?
We will notify accepted shows by the end of March 2023. New this year: Throughout the month of April, we will guide you through a brief workshop process with mentors to get your script ready for production!
Throughout May and June you can take more time with your script and start planning out your production, then we recommend you start rehearsals in July. The Festival tech and performances will take place in late August 2023, exact dates TBD.
How is SheATL Different?
We pride ourselves on providing more for less. As a registered non-profit, we’re able to charge no participation fee, and you get the full SheATL staff on your team to co-produce your show with you! We take care of most of the logistics, so you can focus on the creative parts of producing your show. Note we are unfortunately not able to provide any financial support for travel/housing, so if you live outside of Atlanta, please take that into consideration before applying.
