Before the summary: another great opportunity for writers & theatre enthusiasts & in/for our beloved Hell’s Kitchen!
Things are looking up for the Fourth Annual Midwinter Madness Short Play Festival (Feb. 10 – Mar. 1, 2014). But I’m under a lot of pressure from my competitors to improve things even more (well, from my own Midtown International Theatre Festival, but I’m sure some other festivals will catch on in their own good time), so I’m offering a few features unheard of in this particular corner of the business. First, in keeping with the previous 3 seasons of the Festival:
There are absolutely no fees associated with being in the Festival.
This seems like a fairly conservative principle, until you realize that all other theatre festivals in New York City charge application and participation fees (and other fees for insurance, Equity waiver charges, and God knows what else). Every time I post on LinkedIn I get static for my application and participation fees, and while I love controversy, today I’d rather cut the BS and the fees in one fell swoop.
NOTE: We require that you provide your own board op, who will become part of your production budget. We’ll offer you a list of board ops from which you can hire, which will cost you a modest amount.
All participants will receive 10 hours of free rehearsal time (during off-peak hours, usually daytime weekdays). This is something new, adopted from the MITF of recent years. The theory is that I can buy rehearsal time in bulk where you have to pay retail, so a modest expense for me saves a bundle for you. I’m glad to do it if it’ll encourage you to take part in the Festival.
You will receive half the net, defined as half the difference between your gross and 40% of the maximum possible gross. People ask me, “How much you going to pay me to be in your Festival?”, and I say, “Why should I pay you when I don’t charge you to be here in the first place?” But I understand that putting on a play costs money, so here’s an incentive for you to go out and sell tickets. I love that!
The Midwinter Madness Short Play Festival, now in its 4th season, is inaugurating a Children’s Theatre Division. We are searching for companies who want to try out new material in this genre, either to see it on its feet, test it with a young audience, or develop an audience for themselves. To create a special focus for the genre, we’re reserving special slots early on weekend mornings & daytime on Thursdays and Fridays (Mondays through Wednesdays–reserved for tech rehearsals).
Here are the salient details of the Festival:
Dates for the Festival are Feb. 10 – Mar. 1, 2013.
We are looking to expand on last year’s Festival, with 2 theatres.
Plays should run 30-45 minutes or 45-60 minutes. Better short than long. The plays will be timed at tech and cannot go over.
Scripts should be submitted in standard playscript format.*
Any subject matter okay, including musicals.
The Festival will not combine shorter plays to make full programs. All plays must be off-book. There will be no staged readings. We have no interest in shows that require projections or other special effects. Smoke and fire are prohibited.
Production requirements must be minimal: rehearsal cubes, a table or two, some chairs (all provided by the Festival), and your own props and costumes. There is some storage during your run only.
Tickets will be $14-17. There are no fees. The Festival splits the door with the shows, giving the shows half the net (the net is defined as 40 percent of the maximum-sized house). (This feature is new this year.)
Festival participants may see their own and other shows for free, seating permitting. Seating is reserved for producers, writers, and directors at their own shows. We honor press comps, by reservation. No comps may be transferred to anyone else. There are no other comps.
We prefer shows to be non-Equity. Equity showcases may be permitted under special circumstances.
The Festival will provide a press agent, venue manager, lighting designer, and box-office manager. You must provide your own board op. (The Festival has a list of available qualified technical staff from which you may draw. They are competent and reasonably priced.)
While the Festival provides the venue and staff, you must provide the production. Roy Arias Studios may offer discounts on rehearsal space, at its own discretion. The Festival will provide 10 hours of free rehearsal time, during “off-peak” hours, probably at Roy Arias Studios.
There will be a tech rehearsal running 2.5 times the running time of your show, during business hours on Thurs. and Fri.
All performances will take place from 6 pm to 11 pm weekdays or 11 am to 11 pm weekends.
Each show will receive at least 3 performances, probably all in the same week. Shows that sell the most tickets in advance may receive more performances.
The Festival will provide a program “wrapper”: you must provide a program specific to your show, and insert it into the wrapper for distribution to your patrons.
There will be a juried award ceremony after the Festival. Last year’s awards were combined with the Midtown International Theatre Festival Awards, held in Sept. 2013.
*12 pt Times Roman; character names in the middle on their own line; line spaces between speeches and stage directions; indented stage directions; 1″ margins all around.
I’ve presented a lot of Festivals, and I have a special interest in children’s theatre. Festivals are an easy, cheap, and fun way to see your work on its feet. To submit a script, send it as an attachment in .doc or .pdf format to email@example.com. n questions, don’t hesitate to shoot me an E-mail

Julius von Brunk — also known as Baron von Brunk — is a Pennsylvania-born graphic artist and master LEGO builder. The Baron’s original LEGO creations feature a broad array of themes, mostly encompassing the geeky subculture — with an emphasis on retro video games. Most notably, Baron von Brunk is best remembered for building a large sculpture of a vintage Nintendo Entertainment System controller made entire from LEGO bricks, and wired to actually play games. A lot of his other works consist of perfectly-scaled replicas of video game systems, game cartridges, and accessories that each transform into various robots similar to Hasbro’s “The Transformers” toy line. Von Brunk designs packages and print material for consumer goods as a full-time trade, whilst creating elaborate LEGO models as a serious hobby. His long-term goal is to be a toy designer for a major brand, such as Tyco, Hasbro, Fisher-Price — or even LEGO Group themselves. To check out his personal homepage, visit baronvonbrunk.com, and be sure to like his Facebook fan page to keep up with his updates on current works-in-progress for his custom builds.
