The Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre is now taking applications for STAGEfest 2013, their first annual Festival of One-Act Plays & Performance which will be held March 22-24, 2013.
The inaugural year of STAGEfest 2013 at the Loew's Jersey will be a vibrant and diverse weekend of plays, performance installations and site-specific work, dedicated to the celebration and advancement of theater in our region. STAGEfest is produced by Friends of the Loew's, Inc., the 501c3 Not-For-Profit corporation which restores, maintains and operates the Landmark Loew's Jersey Theatre, located in the heart of Journal Square/Jersey City/Hudson County. All of STAGEfest will happen in the Loew's – but not just on its stage. To wow patrons and glorify the arts, the architects of the Loew's created many extraordinary spaces in addition to the breathtaking auditorium: lobbies, salons, promenades, hallways – all grandly designed and some possessing a surprising feeling of intimacy. For STAGEfest, we want to push past the proscenium and use as many of the Theatre's spaces as practical.
Theater and performance companies as well as individuals based in the greater Northern and Central New Jersey area, are cordially invited to submit scripts and proposals. Deadline for submission is January 4, 2013 (recently extended!) and there is NO application fee. For applications and further information: http://www.loewsjersey.org/stagefest.
