WHAT MAKES ROGUE DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER THEATER FESTIVAL?
Rogue Theater Festival doesn't go rogue.... We are there and ready to support you through the process of putting up your show. No question is silly and no experience of a playwright in our festival should be negative. We care about our playwrights and have been lucky to have return playwrights year after year. We want folks who are experienced and folks who may be putting up a show for the first time. Come make a wave with us!
We also accept more than just traditional theater! Have a clowning show? Great! Have a burlesque piece? Amazing! We love it all at Rogue.
WHAT DOES HYBRID THEATER FESTIVAL MEAN?
Rogue Theater festival is sticking to its hybrid model indefinitely. After the need and success of doing this during the two years of the pandemic, we want to keep this new version of theater festival alive. This means we will offer two different scenarios to our participants.
-In Person Scenario:
Participants will produce their show live and in person in New York City.
- Digital Scenario:
Participants will be able to film their piece remotely anywhere in the world and send a fully edited version for us to stream online.
HOW MANY SHOWS DOES ROGUE ACCEPT EACH YEAR?
This changes year to year as we continue to workshop and build the best festival we can! On average, we accept 5 to 10 in person shows and 20 to 25 digital shows.
CAN I SUBMIT MULTIPLE PIECES?
Yes! Absolutely. However, we will only accept up to two pieces from any one person. Please prioritize when you are submitting.
DOES ROGUE COST MONEY? WHERE DOES THAT MONEY GO?
Yes! Rogue asks for a one time participation fee from each playwright chosen to participate. We do NOT charge for you to submit your play.
Your participation fee goes to renting the space in which we perform and paying our staff livable wages.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T SELL THE REQUIRED AMOUNT OF TICKETS AND HAVE TO BUYOUT THE REST?
Rogue requires each playwright to sell a certain amount of tickets to their show. You will get to perform your show no matter what! However, if you do not meet the minimum tickets sold requirement, the producer (playwright) will need to purchase (buyout) the unsold tickets prior to the performance.
