The Studio Collaborative
2020-21 Season Submission Info:
Due to the unknown nature of the Corona Virus pandemic and when we will be able to produce live theater again, we will not be taking submissions for the next Studio Collaborative Season in August as we normally do. We are very sorry about this, and we look forward to the time when we can collaborate with you again.
The Collaborative is a curated season produced by local outside theatre companies and producing organizations in the Studio Theater. The Collaborative Season runs between December and April of each year when the space is otherwise dark. Each chosen Company/Artist will be given the space and use of our technical equipment (sound, lights) to produce their own show. The Long Beach Playhouse does not produce the show; all needs i.e. technical, construction, support staff, marketing etc., will be the sole responsibility of the Producing Company. The Playhouse and the visiting Company/Artist will split the ticket sales. A small rental fee in the form of a $150 guarantee per performance to either be paid up front or from your gross ticket sales is in place and non-negotiable to cover Playhouse staff and utility costs.
The Collaborative will be booked on a curated basis. All submissions will be considered by the Artistic Director and given an equal chance at a slot in the season. Please be absolutely honest about your plans and expectations as the Artistic Director will be considering inclusion from this information alone. Previous experience fully producing your own shows is a plus. Only local (Southern Californian) organizations will be considered.
