It's Just Sour Grapes!
After years of wanting to make this happen, one of Sour Grapes Productions team dreams is finally going to be a reality - we're having a clown festival!!
While yes, the word "clown" is right there, we're not stuffy about it. Are you a SAD clown? A comedian? Is your show a laugh riot? Does your piece include clowning but you wouldn't specifically call yourself a clown? Are you the clown's evil counterpart, a mime? Something else? We're Down to Clown with ALL y'all.
Applications will be open February 20th - April 10th.
This year's festival will run May 23rd - June 5th. Unless something drastically changes (which would be great! That would mean the virus is getting stamped out!), this will be a predominantly-online festival.
An online festival means more options! We're accepting prerecorded shows as well as live projects. Any shows wanting to be streamed out live from our theater space, The Vino Theater, need to have no more than 5 performers. If performers have not been quarantining together, they will need to wear masks or stay 6 feet away from each other. Please keep this in mind regarding costuming/blocking. No audience will be in the theater with you.
Please note that if your $20 application fee is not submitted before April 10th (again, this is the date submissions close), we unfortunately will not be considering your show. We're a non-profit theater company, we wanna pay our staff to go through each submission, and each takes about an hour of their time. Payments can be made to our festival runner Genny Yosco at either www.venmo.com/gennyyosco or paypal.me/gennyyosco
If accepted into the festival, each show would get a 50/50 ticket split with our company per performance. That means if one of your performances makes $50, you get $25. You don't have to do extra math. Tickets will be $15, with an option for $10 discounted tickets. We will also be putting them on discount sites (Goldstar, TDF, etc) but you will have the option to opt out of this if you so choose. Each show of course gets unlimited press comps. Each production, if chosen, will get 2 performances.
