Seven-Month Performance Series to Include Full-Length One-Person Plays, Special Events, Comedians, Musical Performances and More; Submissions Now Being Accepted
Wendy and William Spatz, owners and operators of the Greenhouse Theater Center (2257 N. Lincoln Avenue), today announced that the venue will produce a major new performance series showcasing the talents of solo performers as the inaugural season of the theater’s new producing division. Running June 2016 – January 2017, “Solo Celebration!” will feature more than 50 weeks of programming comprised of one-person, full-length plays, musical and cabaret performances, comedians and special events on all four of the venue’s stages. Submissions are currently being accepted for consideration to be included in the series at greenhousetheater.org.
The programming for “Solo Celebration!” will include as many as 15 full-length plays, which may run for as many as six weeks, as well as a multitude of limited engagements, running from one to three weeks, and special events with one or two performances. Most productions will be produced by Greenhouse Theater Center or co-produced by the venue in partnership with an established theater company. Four performance spaces are available: two 200-seat theaters and two 60-seat black-box studios. All artists will be paid, and all productions will receive box office and house management support, as well as significant marketing support provided by Carol Fox and Associates.
Artists who wish to submit their work for consideration for inclusion in “Solo Celebration!” can apply by visiting greenhousetheater.org. Specific application requirements can be found on the website. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2016 and applicants will be notified of their status on a rolling basis. Programming will be announced at a future date.
Funding for “Solo Celebration!” is provided by the Wendy and William Spatz Charitable Foundation.
