Planet Connections Call For Plays (1/15 DEADLINE)

The 2009 Planet Connections Theater Festivity is now accepting musicals, one-acts and full length plays! DEADLINE for submissions is JANUARY 15TH. The festival's primary focus is to nurture and promote activism while providing a fun and professional atmosphere for the theater community. The festival will debut on June 8 and end on June 28, 2009 at the newly renovated 440 Theaters located across the street from The Public at Astor Place and Lafayette.

Besides using your theater talents/skills to do some good in the world, here are added benefits:

*Acceptance and participation in our festivity is a great opportunity to try out your new script, fine tune your existing production or get your finished product off the ground.
*Our financial deals are better than most of the festivals out there because unlike other festivals, were just looking to cover our costs. We aren't in this for the money!
*We offer services in casting, locating designers and stage managers. We even offer a workshop on "producing in a festival" in case you need to learn the ropes.
*Unlike other festivals, we don't allow our festival publicist to take on individual shows within our festival. This means, she will work with YOU and we will promote equal listings for ALL of our productions.
*We have a liberal policy of providing complimentary tickets to industry members. All participants in the festival can see any other production in the festival for free. In fact, we encourage this.
*By participating in the festivity, you are automatically entered into the upcoming awards presentation. The Festival and Spotlight On, will hold an awards ceremony shortly after the end of the festival.
*One of the Planet Connections perks is our parties - we love to throw receptions and parties before, during and after the festival. We allow plenty of time for schmoozing in our festival lounge which is located on the same floor as both of our theater spaces. You can also use our Festival Lounge for your opening night parties and benefits to support the community/charity of your choice, for free!
*Oh, and we also have an art gallery to promote artists in our community. These artists subject matters cover all sorts of social topics from animal rights issues to women's issues.

We hope you'll be inspired to use your skills to make a difference!
