However, each show is required to provide an audience for their piece. A minimum of 20 paid audience members for every show is REQUIRED, but we really want you pack our 99-seat house for your single performance. The more support you have in the audience, the more you’ll get out of your performance and talk back, plus we’ll like you more. If you feel you cannot provide an audience for your piece, don’t apply. EAT charges $10 per ticket for this festival and no comp tickets are available. CASTING Each production is responsible for casting, director, musicians or recorded music. Please include collaborator information with submission, if available. The New Works Series is a workshop production. Union and non-union performers are encouraged to apply. EAT can make introductions to EAT directors, actors, and other artists if you are seeking personnel to work on your production. EAT cannot guarantee that its Company personnel will accept work offered. TECH SCHEDULE Each show will receive at least 1.5X the running time of their piece as tech rehearsal. These rehearsals will be scheduled sometime the week before your performance. EAT provides a board operator and stage manager for the entire festival. EAT may provide rehearsal space for musical performances, based on availability at our host theatre, TADA. EAT does not provide any other rehearsal space, all other rehearsal space is paid for and arranged by the individual shows. Each production must bring an UP TO DATE final script to tech, with the moments for light and sound cues marked in pencil or sticky notes. PERFORMANCES Each show will receive ONE performance during the festival. There will be 30 minutes OR LESS on either side of your production to load-in and out of the theatre and dressing rooms. You must provide labor to accomplish your load-in and load-out. If your piece is less than 60 minutes, you will be sharing a timeslot with another piece. SCENERY AND PROPS EAT will provide the artists with minimal furniture (i.e. chairs, cubes, piano, etc). All other props and set pieces are the responsibility of the individual productions. There is no storage space available at the theatre. The set for the festival will be a simple blank stage. In the New Works Series, less is more in terms of props and set, and please keep in mind the short changeover time while preparing for your piece. 7th Annual New Work Festival / May 3rd – May 21st, 2011 / New York City / www.eatheatre.org / Application LIGHTING AND SOUND A basic light plot will be provided for the entire festival. A maximum of FIVE internal light and sound cues for each show is allowed. This does not include the opening and closing cues. Any special requirements must be provided and operated by the individual shows. EAT cannot guarantee the availability of lighting specials in all areas of the stage, as we will be working with a rep plot with limited options. Each production must provide its own sound cues, in order, on CD. AUDIENCE FEEDBACK There will be a brief audience feedback session after each performance, curated by some of EAT’s seasoned veterans of OMT, OMS, NFP and WNS. This is a great opportunity to get honest feedback on your work. You may prepare questions to ask the audience. EMERGING ARTISTS THEATRE'S mission is to provide a dynamic home for emerging writers and artists, providing the unique opportunity for playwrights to collaborate with directors, actors, and designers throughout the development process—from idea through fully realized production. EAT's supportive environment nurtures a close-knit group of artists working toward the common goal of creating dynamic theatre, and its commitment to the development of new works is integral to the cultural enrichment of New York City. “I, the undersigned, have read and understand all of the technical, audience, casting and performance requirements listed above. I understand that notifications of participation will be sent out on a rolling basis, and any materials I’ve submitted for application will not be returned to me. I understand that previous participation in the festival does not guarantee acceptance. I understand that upon acceptance, all deadlines must be adhered to in order to secure participation in the festival. I promise to relay technical and performance requirements to my artistic team. “ Signature of applicant (REQUIRED):_ Date: .
