We’re Looking for a Few Good Plays…
Confetti Stage, as a community theater, is always interested in which shows our community would like to see us produce. To that end, we are now accepting play suggestions for the 2020/2021 season.
For those who wish to increase their chances of acceptance, the following best describes what we are looking for in a full season:
- 2 regular, main stage productions, performed in the Albany Masonic Temple, typically in February and April/May.
- 1 Outdoor Summer show at Ten Broeck Mansion that is to be either Shakespeare or a “classic.” “Classic” in this case means a non-musical production that is either an important part of theater history or based on a classic work of literature. We try to keep this production geared towards families to enhance the fun, sunny atmosphere of summer theater. Not children, but families. Being within the public domain is a huge benefit for any suggestions, but not a necessity. Performance in August.
- Confetti Fest, which features original works and is not a part of this selection process. Performance at the Albany Masonic Temple in October.
- A Christmas Show. This is always at WAMC’s The Linda Performing Arts Studio. Performances in December.
This guideline is, of course, subject to change based on our needs and resources.
Our Mission Statement (in case you need some inspiration):
“Confetti Stage was founded to explore the human experience, while illuminating the myriad diversities which define us as groups and individuals. Confetti Stage promotes diversity and understanding through the creation of dynamic and inspirational productions and educational opportunities. We strive to maintain the highest possible level of artistic standards while fostering collaboration and mutual respect.”
I have included our standard suggestion form on this page. These forms are to be filled out and returned to us by December 31st, 2019.
You may email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Below is the recommendation form. Please fill it out in its entirety. If you are also interested in directing the show with us, you are encouraged to also submit a production concept, if you desire. Be advised that any director candidate must also pitch their concept for the show before the board before they are approved to direct any show that is chosen.
Thank you for your interest in our work, and we appreciate your feedback!
