I’m submitting a couple pieces to the Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre’s STAGEfest, and everyone in the area should, too! It’s a beautiful space and I know I would love to work in it!
I will be sending in a new piece, “Before, After and Always.” As I mentioned in a recent blog post, it is a three-part episodic play featuring a male and female lead. Two of the pieces are adapted from my short stories “Good bye” and “Long Lost Love Song.” It also features an original piece, “Be Longing.”
I’ve been looking for an actor to be my partner (I will be taking the female lead) if the play gets in, and I do have someone in mind, but am open to anyone who’d like to audition. I really want to get someone who has the best chemistry with me possible.
Here are some details about the festival:
The Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre is now taking applications for STAGEfest 2013, their first annual Festival of One-Act Plays & Performances which will be held March 22-24, 2013.
The inaugural year of STAGEfest 2013 at the Loew’s Jersey will be a vibrant and diverse weekend of plays, performance installations and site-specific work, dedicated to the celebration and advancement of theater in our region. All of STAGEfest will happen in the Loew’s – but not just on its stage. To wow patrons and glorify the arts, the architects of the Loew’s created many extraordinary spaces in addition to the breathtaking auditorium: lobbies, salons, promenades, hallways –- all grandly designed and some possessing a surprising feeling of intimacy. Many of these spaces will be available as nontraditional performance venues.
Theater and performance companies as well as individuals based in the greater Northern and Central New Jersey area, are cordially invited to submit scripts and proposals. Deadline for submission is January 4, 2013 (recently extended!) and there is NO application fee. For applications and further information: http://www.loewsjersey.org/stagefest
