Yo Young Artistes...


The Paprika Festival is accepting submissions in all styles of writing, or in the form of a detailed project description, from young artists who want to learn about more about theatre, challenge themselves and work towards the performance of their own new work. Participants begin working with the festival in the Fall of 2006, and develop their projects with the support of a wide range of professional artists.

The festival culminates in public presentations March 15-25, 2007 in the Studios at the Tarragon Theatre.

Passionate voices, new ideas, original approaches – we want you to break new ground as the next generation of theatre and performance artists!

We are looking for submissions from young artists of all levels of experience.

Call for submissions deadline: sept 15, 2006

All submissions should include:

* A completed Application Form, available for download at
www.paprikafestival.com, (which also includes details about
applying to our Artists Lab & Playwrights Unit programs).

* A Project Description explaining your project in detail.

* A Script or writing sample.

* Information about all collaborators involved in your
production, including, your playwright, director, actors, designers
and stage managers, if possible.

* Support Material – anything that might help us get to
know you, your work and why you are passionate about your
project, and could include (but is not limited to) music CDs,
images, drawings, articles and information about past projects.

Please mail or deliver submissions to: Paprika Festival

Based on the submitted proposals, selected applicants will be invited to
an interview with festival artists and staff, which will inform how
