Festival (dates March 23-27, 2011)

Request for Submissions for the Inaugural Tucson Fringe Theater Festival

Festival will be held March 23-27, 2011

The first ever Tucson Fringe Theater Festival is now requesting submissions
for the week of March 23-27, 2011.  The Tucson Fringe Festival is an
unjuried, uncensored festival promoting accessibility for presenting artists
and unrestrained artistic freedom.

Partnering with Downtown Tucson landmarks such as The Screening Room and the
Beowulf Alley Theatre, Tucson Fringe Theater Festival is looking for
performing artists and companies to submit performance proposals for
inclusion in the 4 day festival to be held in Downtown Tucson.  The
selection will be on a first-come, first-served basis. If we receive more
applications than we have performance spots, we'll hold a lottery to select
artists.  Any kind of performance will be considered. This includes, but is
not limited to: theater, dance, performance art, clowning, sketch comedy,
etc.  We prefer original works, but previously performed work will be
accepted if the underlying rights are obtained by the performers.

Founded by two native Tucsonans and lifelong friends Yasmine M. Jahanmir and
Sara Habib, Tucson Fringe Theater Festival hopes to expand upon an already
thriving theatrical community by promoting affordable opportunities for
artists to craft original ideas while presenting a wider array of
performance practice.  Tucson has always been dedicated to the arts, and is
the perfect place to host an avant-garde, innovative festival like Fringe.
Downtown Tucson provides an ideal setting to bring together arts patrons of
all demographics.
