Request for Submissions for the Inaugural Tucson Fringe Theater Festival

The first ever Tucson Fringe Theater Festival is now requesting submissions for the week of March 23-27, 2011. The Tucson Fringe Festival is an unjuried, uncensored festival promoting accessibility for presenting artists and unrestrained artistic freedom.

Partnering with Downtown Tucson landmarks such as The Screening Room and the Beowulf Alley Theatre, Tucson Fringe Theater Festival is looking for performing artists and companies to submit performance proposals for inclusion in the 4 day festival to be held in Downtown Tucson. The selection will be on a first-come, first-served basis. If we receive more applications than we have performance spots, we’ll hold a lottery to select artists. Any kind of performance will be considered. This includes, but is not limited to: theater, dance, performance art, clowning, sketch comedy, etc. We prefer original works, but previously performed work will be accepted if the underlying rights are obtained by the performers.

Founded by two native Tucsonans and lifelong friends Yasmine M. Jahanmir and Sara Habib, Tucson Fringe Theater Festival hopes to expand upon an already thriving theatrical community by promoting affordable opportunities for artists to craft original ideas while presenting a wider array of performance practice. Tucson has always been dedicated to the arts, and is the perfect place to host an avant-garde, innovative festival like Fringe. Downtown Tucson provides an ideal setting to bring together arts patrons of all demographics.
