About the CSA
At the New Hazlett Theater, we don’t just make art – we make art happen. Our space is an incubator for performers and creators, and we’ve worked for the last seven years to bring out the best in everyone who has walked through our doors. In the spirit of our mission to cultivate the arts, we have developed the Community Supported Art (CSA) Program. Based on the Community Supported Agriculture model, our CSA series allows patrons to support local artists by purchasing a ‘share’ and in turn receive access to fresh, new works of art. We’re excited to announce an open call for artist applications to participate in the 2019 / 2020 Season.
We will select up to eight performing artists of any genre (including theater, dance, music, spoken word, performance art, etc.) through a competitive application process. In addition to a stipend, the artists selected will receive two performance nights at the New Hazlett Theater, including access to rehearsal space, technicians, basic house equipment and front-of-house staff.
About The Design Pool
Up to eight theatrical design applicants (of any discipline, including scenic, lighting, sound, projection, and costume design) will be selected to participate in a speed interview event with the artists. At the speed interview, designers are encouraged to show selections from their portfolio and artists will discuss the project to determine which designers will be offered a paid design position for the production. Selected Designers will be given a chance to earn exclusive paid positions, promotion within our network, and the opportunity to collaborate with some of the regions most innovative performing artists.
Selected technical theater applicants will receive:
Listing in the preferred designer network, from which CSA performance artists can hire for design services, with funds allocated for exclusive use within the network
Promotion throughout the New Hazlett network
Opportunities to grow relationships with emerging professional artists
