Perform at Bumbershoot 2015!

The Center Theatre/Carleton Playhouse at Seattle Center will host three exceptional days of regional theater at Bumbershoot, co-curated by Theatre Puget Sound (TPS). TPS nurtures a healthy and vibrant theatre community, strives to develop strong ties among the region’s theatre professionals and raises visibility of this region’s theatre scene at the local, national and international levels.What We’re Looking For

  • Theatrical presentations 30-75 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 performance

Venue & Tech NotesThe Bumbershoot theatre program occurs in the Carleton Playhouse at the Center Theatre. The venue, configured in a modified thrust, seats 195 with no seat further than seven rows from the stage. The festival package consists of a full drape set with travellers upstage, providing an intimate performance environment with excellent acoustics.

Please note that the TPS Stage at Bumbershoot performances are presented in a festival format. Each company will be given up to six hours for technical and dress rehearsals prior to the festival. During the festival, the turnaround time between shows is limited to 30 minutes. All companies are encouraged to assist production management in accomplishing efficient changeovers between shows.
