Call for Proposals for the 2022-2023 Theater Season at the Arts Barn!
APPLICATIONS DUE DECEMBER 17, 2021!
Arts on the Green, the City of Gaithersburg’s home for the performing and visual arts which includes the Kentland’s Mansion and Arts Barn, is now soliciting production proposals for the theater season beginning July 2022 through June 2023. Located in the Kentlands, the Arts Barn (theatre venue) is housed in a Victorian-era renovated stable with a charming 99-seat theater.
Productions accepted for the Theater Series will be part of the Theater Arts Partnership Program (TAPP). A production partnership is created between the production company and the Arts Barn/City of Gaithersburg. The City provides use of the Arts Barn and its many resources (fully equipped theater, rehearsal space, box office, advertising and marketing support) without the high rental rates of other facilities in the area. The production company is responsible for the direct production costs of the show (royalties, set and construction, props, costumes, etc.). The box office proceeds are then split between the production company and the City. This unique program provides TAPP partners affordable, quality production space while helping the City fulfill its commitment to a robust arts and cultural environment for its residents.
The theater season is July 2022 through June 2023. The FY23 season marks the 20th Anniversary of the Opening of the Arts Barn! We are seeking strong proposals of musicals, plays, youth theatre and theatre for young audiences. Theater productions generally run either two or three weeks preceded by a week of tech time in the theater.
Groups may apply for up to four production slots and may offer up to six shows to be considered. The Request For Proposals process is conducted annually. Selections are recommended by a peer review committee based on the strength of the proposal and the credentials of the theater group. No group, regardless of past TAPP participation is assured of inclusion in the theater series. The Arts Barn reserves the right to decline any or all proposals submitted.
Factors to consider before making your proposal:
