The deadline to apply to Center Theatre Group’s 2017-2018 Block Party: Celebrating Los Angeles Theatre has been extended to June 6, 2017. Block Party aims to highlight some of the remarkable work being done on other stages throughout Los Angeles by fully producing three previously staged productions at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. The new deadline to apply to the 2017-2018 Block Party program is June 6, 2017.
Theatre companies from the greater Los Angeles area may submit one production for consideration. To be eligible, the production must have opened between January 1, 2016, and May 30, 2017. Three productions will be selected for presentation at the Kirk Douglas Theatre, March 29 through May 20, 2018.
This year, the round one application has been significantly simplified, streamlining the application process for companies that apply. A select number of companies will then be invited to the round two application, at which time more in-depth design information will be requested.
The three selected productions will be announced in the fall and each will have a two-week run with 12 performances (including two previews) at the Douglas. All three theatre companies will be part of a collaboration with Center Theatre Group and will receive the full support of Center Theatre Group and its staff in order to fund, stage and market each production.
Interested theatre companies must complete an online application by June 6 to be considered.
