After the success of last year's Make It SO festival, NST are excited to announce that the festival will be coming back for the second time! Nuffield Southampton Theatres (NST) are inviting applications from Southampton and Hampshire artists and companies to perform at NST City’s Studio Theatre in February 2020.
Last year, Make It SO applications were broken down into three categories: work in progress, Experiment applications and finished shows. This year NST are asking for applications of any shape and size, whether your production is just an idea, tried and tested or just come out of its first research and development, NST want to hear from you.
The artist, or at least one member of the company must live or be based in Southampton or Hampshire and be responsible for producing the show. Applications are also welcome for music, spoken word, dance, as well as theatre, as we’d like to represent the breadth of work being made in Hampshire.
Successful applicants will be offered free workshops in November 2019 to February 2020 on various subjects including Marketing, Technical Theatre, Fundraising, Project Management and Touring.
Deadline for applications will be Monday 14th October 2019 at 12pm. Applications will then be shortlisted, with offers out to the successful companies, week commencing the 28th October. If you are a successful company, please be aware that due to tight timelines, we will be asking for quick turnaround on acceptance of offers.
