There is no fee for submissions or acceptance and artists do not receive a percentage of box office.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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
              7th Annual New Work Festival / May 3rd – May 21st, 2011 / New York City / www.eatheatre.org / Application

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.

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. “
