Passion into Practice
SUBMIT YOUR PASSION PROJECT
Brown Box Theatre Project’s passions lie in making theater accessible by touring to communities where theatre culture is thought of as unattainable and in introducing our audiences to the unheard voice through stories that widen their perspective. Through this Submission Program, we seek to provide a diverse array of perspectives from Artists that have a strong voice, and which incite conversation, introspection, and empathy. We seek to combine your passion with ours to uplift the voices that need to be heard and put passion into practice.
Brown Box’s Pillars
Any theater Artist (playwright, director, actor, or designer) can submit. The Application should provide a clear, thought out plan for the production from the perspective of the role for which the Artist is applying. In order to be considered, the Application must take into account Brown Box’s Technical and Creative Pillars. Please review our Pillars below for more information and clarity. All information on our Pillars is also located in the Application Guidelines PDF. Lastly, a Brown Box season must execute the diversity standard and goals to provide a wide array of perspectives and styles.
The Unheard Voice
We strive to use theatre to educate, share new ideas, and/or offer insight into perspectives of others.
There are three avenues from which Brown Box approaches the idea of the unheard voice. In our selection process, plays must fulfill at least two of the three artistic criteria:
Productions where it is the artist executing the work whose voice is unheard.
Productions where it is the themes of the play that offer an alternative viewpoint on an issue, an event, or a way of life.
Productions that have been unheard by our audiences.
Making Tour-able Theatre
Brown Box Theatre Project is a touring theatre company – all of our productions tour in their entirety to multiple venues. This aspect of our productions means there some specific requirements in design and logistics that must be met or taken into account to ensure that our productions can be easily toured to different venues.
In touring to multiple locations, the number of people that we are able to transport and house must be taken into account.
Our sets must be tourable whether this means packing them into a truck, trailer, or even a suitcase.
Brown Box works hard to provide professional-quality lighting that can be easily set up and broken down at each performance.
Our props are transported in whatever space is left after the lights and sets and costumes have been packed away.
