Cheryl King Productions at Stage Left Studio is now accepting submissions for the 5th Annual Left Out Festival, which will take place April 7-17, 2011. The first Left Out Festival was for solo shows only, but in the new Stage Left in Chelsea we are set up for solo shows and small cast plays. We also welcome short monologues and sketches that we will put together with others for a night of their own. As with most festivals, set and tech requirements should be minimal.  “Gay” does not have to be the entire theme of the piece, but, as it is a “gay festival”, we are specifically inviting artists to submit material with gay themes.  We wish to celebrate same spirit of fun, open celebration of gay performance art that we presented in our first festival in 2007.  Deadline for submissions is Feb 15, 2011. The jury process will be concluded by March 5, 2011.

There are NO FEES associated with this festival. Performers will receive half of box office proceeds after the house minimum is satisfied. The bulk of the house minimum is split equally between Bailey House, providers of housing and support to people living with HIV and AIDS, and GMHC.

Tickets will be $20. Industry comps will be available, and the presenters will do their best to bring reviewers in for the shows.

Applications can be downloaded from the Left Out Festival 2011 tab at www.stageleftstudio.net




All application materials must be received by Feb 15, 2011.

Submissions will receive notification by March 5, 2011. The complete schedule will be announced on or around March 10, 2011. Please email any questions to: [email protected]
