UPDATED SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Dear Friend in the Theatre, 
 
MITF: Summer is one of the oldest and biggest theatre festivals in New York City. Our Midtown location is safe, clean, convenient, and close to the offices of industry members. We set ourselves apart from other festivals as we do not require application or participation fees.
We're looking for any kind of play or musical that fits our guidelines:
• 30 - 90 min. long (musicals may run up to 120 min.)
• Easy to produce in a no-frills festival
• Any genre. (Short subject plays/musicals using guns as props will not be considered. Full-Length plays/musicals using guns as props are accepted).
• Union or non-union
• Word document or PDF file. Pages MUST be numbered and script must be in standard playscript format: 12 pt Times Roman; character names in the middle on their own line; line spaces between speeches and stage directions; indented stage directions; 1" margins all around.

The Festival will take place at the Workshop Theater's Main Stage and Jewel Box Theaters, 312 W. 36th St., NYC. MITF: Summer runs from July 16 - August 7. The Short Play Lab runs Saturday, July 16 - Sunday, July 17 in the Jewel Box Theater.
 
The Festival provides a theatre (the WorkShop Theater's Main Stage and Jewel Box), shared scenery (rehearsal cubes, a table, and 4 chairs), and front-of-house staff. Shows must be fully produced (off book!).

To submit a project, mark it clearly "MITF: Summer," and let us know whether it is a full-length or short, a play or a musical, a variety act, a 10-min. play, or a staged reading. We'll curate the entries as they come in, so you can start working on them as soon as possible. Please send all playscripts and all Variety submissions (video reels, YouTube, etc.) to: john.chatterton@gmail.com.

Dear Friend in the Theatre, 
 
MITF: Summer is seeking Variety Acts. MITF: Summer combines some of the most popular features of past MITF festivals: short plays and musicals, a Variety division, the Short Play Lab, and staged readings. The Festival will take place at the WorkShop Theater's Main Stage and Jewel Box Theaters and will run from July 16 - August 7, 2016.

The Variety division spans cabaret, magic, improv, sketch comedy, standup, and burlesque. Acts can be solo or group affairs, so long as they fit within an hour, including setup and strike, and so long as they bring their own music director and so forth. The Festival provides a keyboard, mike, and amp. Each act will be given one performance with the possibility of added performances to those acts with the best advance ticket sales-Festival schedule permitting. Shows receive a 1-hour tech rehearsal and a share of the profits, if any.

To submit a Variety Act: Mark it clearly "MITF: Summer," and that it is a variety act. Please also include video reels (you tube, etc.), of your act as part of your submission application. We'll curate the entries as they come in. Please send all Variety submissions to: john.chatterton@gmail.com
We look forward to watching your acts!

Submission Deadline For Variety Is May 2, 2016.

JULY 16-AUGUST 7
The WorkShop Theater's Main Stage and
Jewel Box Theaters

Circus art

Dear Friend in the Theatre, 
 
Every small theatre company in the country is aware of the possibilities of children's theatre (meaning, for me, theatre performed by adults for children and their parents). Why? Because children's-theatre audiences are populated by people whose only requirement is that they have children (or be children). If you perform children's theatre and market it properly, you can expect regular audiences of people who otherwise wouldn't think of going to a play.

MITF: Summer is searching for companies who want to try out new material in this genre, either to see it on its feet, test it with a young audience, or develop an audience for themselves. To create a special focus for the genre, we're reserving special slots early on weekend mornings and in the daytime on Thursdays and Fridays (Mondays through Wednesdays are reserved for tech rehearsals). Details are straightforward:

• Dates for the Festival are July 16 - August 7, 2016.
• The Venue for MITF: Summer is The WorkShop Theater's Main Stage and Jewel Box Theaters, 312 W.36th Street, NYC.
• Submission deadline is April 15, 2016. 
• Plays must run 30-60 minutes. Better short than long.  The plays will be timed at tech and cannot go over.
• Scripts should be submitted in standard playscript format.* 
• Any subject matter okay, including musicals.
• All plays must be off-book. There will be no staged readings. We have no interest in shows that require projections or other special effects. Smoke and fire are prohibited. 
• Production requirements must be minimal: rehearsal cubes, a table or two, some chairs (all provided by the Festival), and your own props and costumes. There is no overnight storage at the Theatre.
No participation fee! 
• Tickets are $20.00
• Union and Non-Union Shows are accepted.  
• The Festival provides a publicist, TD, box-office manager, and a board op.
• While the Festival provides the venue and staff, you must provide the production. 
• There will be a tech rehearsal running 2 times the running time of your show, and will be scheduled prior to your first show.
• Performance will take place from 11 am to 2pm weekends. 
• Each show will receive 3 performances, probably all in the same week.  
*12 pt Times Roman; character names in the middle on their own line; line spaces between speeches and stage directions; indented stage directions; 1" margins all around.

MITF OPENS DOORS TO EQUITY SHOWS!
MITF RETHINKS EQUITY SHOWS!

Dear Friend in the Theatre,

Good News for Equity Showcases!
In the past, the MITF has discouraged Equity showcases from participating in its short-play festivals, because of the number of complimentary tickets required by the Equity showcase code. The Festival, now in its 17th season, is pleased to announce that it has relaxed its policies regarding Equity showcases for short plays. From now on, both union and non-union short plays will be welcome in the upcoming MITF short-play festivals. These festivals occur in March, July, and November, 2016. (There will be no change in the non-union policy for the Short Play Lab.)

Instead of rejecting showcases outright, the Festival will make adjustments to Equity shows' share of the profits, if any, to make up for the extra cost of complimentary tickets.

Our next festival is MITF: Summer, running from July 16-August 7. Please send us your Union and non-union shows!
 
Thanks,
John Chatterton
