****OPEN CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR SUNDOWN’S ANNUAL SHORT WORKS FESTIVAL****

We’re looking to showcase a variety of performative art as we continue Sundown’s goal of cultivating and collaborating with local performers and artists.

We’re open to anything, so send us all of your ideas and all the short works you have! Some examples of what you could submit:
-short plays

-improv
-sketches
-poetry
-and if you can think of it, we’re interested in it!

Send us an electronic copy of your script and/or idea to info@sundowntheatre.org. We’re looking for pieces that are 20 minutes or less – we don’t need a finished product, we only ask that you send us SOMETHING. If you feel that a discussion is necessary to explain your idea, contact us and we can set up an in-person or Skype meeting to talk. An oral presentation is optional; we will consider all submissions we get.
