BCS is looking for young theatre makers to do their own thing in Belconnen Community Theatre for ACT Youth Week in April 2018. Are you into making plays, musicals, dance, circus, and/or experimental performance of any kind? This post tells you all you need to know to put your proposal together so you can have support to put on your own show.
Access All Areas is a project that encourages and supports young people between the ages of 18 and 25 to create and present their own theatre shows. Access All Areas will take place in Belconnen Community Theatre from Monday 16 April to Friday 20 April, during ACT Youth Week. Performances will take place on Thursday April 19 and Friday April 20 with the rest of the week being used for rehearsal and technical set up. Proposals may include any or all of the following: plays, musicals, dance, installations, circus, and/or experimental performances.
Proposed performances should be between fifteen minutes and one hour in duration. Part of the aim of Access All Areas is to support the development of a community of emerging theatre makers. BCS may program two or more performances. In this case, successful producers will be asked to collaborate on appropriate production design to accommodate multiple performances. Belconnen Community Theatre seats an audience of 145. There are large male and female dressing rooms with toilets and showers. People of all abilities and cultural backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Preference will be given to presentation of original work that has been developed by young people.
Additional rehearsal space in the weeks leading up to production may potentially be available (theatre schedule allowing), and will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
Proposals must be submitted by 5pm on Friday February 16
In person: Belconnen Community Centre, Swanson Court Belconnen
