Location: Local (Cleveland Area)

CPT is seeking Northeast Ohio artists for its 2018/2019 Season, and we are reaching out to you for great ideas. Deadline to submit proposals is December 18, 2017.

CPT is focused on new work that is surprising, unexpected and somehow outside the realm of conventional theatre.

CPT is looking for proposals from Northeast Ohio artists for complete projects. Proposals may be for world premieres, second or third US productions, radical re-envisioning of classic plays or other projects. The show could be your own show or a script you would like to work on.

Based on the success of past co-productions and our New Play Development series, we are also interested in creating opportunities for artists and groups that would like to retain greater ownership of projects and who can share risk with CPT.

*Take time to look at CPT’s recent seasons—these are excellent examples of our programming choices. Check out our Season Archive

*Get a sense of CPT’s aesthetic and artistic sensibility—if you haven’t seen a lot of shows at CPT, talk to people who have.

*CPT has a culture of doing a lot with a little and production budgets are modest. Keep in mind CPT’s financial limitations.

*If this is a new/original project, think through its current state of development—is it still in early development or at the right moment for full production?

Proposals of complete projects should be 1-3 pages long, not including script or work samples, and must include:
*A one page summary of the project: including why this project fits CPT’s mission and why it’s important to you as an artist.
*Your sense of what state the project is currently in and a general plan to bring it to completion.
*A resume for all primary artists involved.
*Additional materials that will help us get a sense of the project: copy of proposed script, sample of past work, video, etc. Please mention if you are interested in co-producing options.

DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS IS MONDAY, DECEMBER 18TH, 2017. Please see the GUIDELINES LINK ABOVE for full details and submission information.
