It's Just Sour Grapes!
Third year in a row, y'all! We're back and better than ever. The 2021 SoMaShakes Festival is ready for action!
If you have any questions about this form, please send us an email at email@example.com. Applications will be open March 21st - May 8th.
This year's theme is The Comedy of Errors! We're accepting not only full productions of CoE, but you do not have to submit a by-the-book Comedy of Errors - in fact for our 2020 festival we did not have a regular Hamlet in the lineup at all. If you choose to participate, your production could be inspired by the show, it could be a side plot that didn't get the attention you wanted it to, it could be an improv show with the characters from CoE.
This year's festival will run July 18th - 31st. Since this festival will be in the summer, we're hoping that we'll be able to have shows in our theater space, The Vino Theater! That being said, we're more than willing to make this a fully virtual festival if needed. All shows, even if they are performed in front of an in-person audience, will be streamed out to a private online link (virtual theater is here to stay, babes!), so if you'd like to submit a fully virtual piece, you are more than welcome to do so.
Please note that if your $15 application fee is not submitted before May 8th (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 up to 5 performances, but we are willing to provide less if you don't want all 5.
