Call for Projects

ETC is excited to be making our official CALL FOR PROJECT PROPOSALS for work to be presented Nov. 8-17, 2019 at the 6th Annual Last Chance New Play Fest in Helena.

What is the Fest?

The Last Chance New Play Fest is a cooperative venture providing an opportunity for creative artists to develop, share, and celebrate their work in front of an audience, perhaps as a springboard to greater ventures. For example, Steve Palmer's full length, one-man comedy, Boxed (LCNPF 2015) went on to be accepted into the United Solo Festival in New York City two years later.  Pretty Little White Heads, a one-act by Rebecca Ryland (LCNPF 2017) was selected for Riot Act's play festival in Jackson, Wyoming the same year. This year, Ross Peter Nelson's In the End (LCNPF 2016) is being produced by Roaming Theatre of Santa Barbara.


What are we looking for?

Submitting a project does not commit you to a performance at this time. It is a notification of your intent to participate, and a means for us to evaluate which projects are suitable for the Fest. Your proposals are due on August 15, 2019. If selected for the Fest, you will be asked to make a firm commitment to the Fest by October 1, 2019. We will provide the performance venue, minimal lights and sound, and include your project in advertising and marketing.  We will also include your scheduled performances and a description of your project in our Fest Guide which is distributed at various locations around town. However, each project is intended to be “self-produced” and ready for performance in front of an audience by November 2. Projects will be performed 1-4 times during the Fest based on available slots and on the availability dates listed on your Finalized Project Form.

How do I submit?

To submit your proposal for the Last Chance New Play Fest, please complete and email the form below (paperclip icon)  to  Include “2019 Project Proposal” in the subject.

Are there other opportunities for me in the Fest?

Please help us spread the word by sharing this email with other Montana performance artists. If you don't want to produce a project, but are interested in participating as an actor, director, stage manager, production assistant, or volunteer of any kind, please email us at the address above. We welcome your talents, time, and support.
