Apply for the 2012 Bumbershoot Theatre Stage!

SEPTEMBER 1-3, 2011
Applications due April 2

Theatre Puget Sound is now accepting applications for BUMBERSHOOT’s Theatre Stage at the Center House Theatre, September 1-3.

What we’re looking for:

  • Theatrical presentations between 30 and 75 minutes long
  • Suggested performance types: late night shows, season showcase performances, solo shows, puppet theatre, cabaret, theatrical comedy and youth-oriented shows
  • Performances that will captivate a pop culture-savvy festival audience, many of whom will not have previous exposure to the art form
  • Fun, daring, spectacular, truly exciting performances
  • Most importantly – performances you would not see on any other stage at Bumbershoot!

Here’s great stuff about the performances:

  • It’s PAID!
  • Theatre seats 195 and we often fill the entire theatre
  • Opportunity to do 1-3 shows
  • Press opportunities!  Your performance listed in all the newspapers, often with previews

TPS membership is not required to apply.  Applications are due April 2.  I know that doesn’t leave you much time, but please note we don’t need a 100% complete plan in the first round.  In mid-May, there will be a secondary questionnaire for those we feel best fit our stage; those applicants will be asked for further details on their show.  Even if you’ve only got a seedling of an idea.. APPLY!

Fill out the online Bumbershoot application here.  For more details on the entire festival, Bumbershoot’s official page is located at  If you have any questions, please contact me.. I can’t wait to see your ideas!
