Are you a director or a theatre group looking for a theatre open to your submissions? Then Coronado Playhouse wants to hear from you! They are accepting submissions for their plays, musicals, cabarets, and concerts for their 2023 season are open through Saturday, February 12th.
The playhouse has a history of consistently putting out shows and taking risks on their stage to the delight of their audiences. Heather Barton Tjalma who is a member of the Board of Directors and Play Selection Committee Co-Chair for Coronado Playhouse, says that the goal of the open submissions is not only to bring amazing shows to their stage in Coronado but to also help expand their connection to both artists and their audience.
“Coronado Playhouse is passionate about nurturing collaborative partnership to foster relationships with a more diverse group of artist and audience members.”
The last few years have proven difficult for everyone in the industry, which has Coronado Playhouse thinking about how to help the future of theatre artists continue to grow and thrive. Currently, they have two open submissions initiatives.
The Directors Initiative is looking for directors of all backgrounds and experience, and the Co-Production Partner Initiative is for theatre groups looking for a co-production partner. The hope is that through both initiatives the Playhouse hopes to build towards that diversity on stage, behind the scenes, and in their audience.
“There are a number of theater groups without a permanent home base who do amazing creative work. The board saw this as a wonderful opportunity to help provide a more open space for them in our community. In these partnerships, we hope to nurture relationships with a wider range of artists and audiences members”
Chosen submissions will be incorporated into Coronado Playhouse’s 2023 season
