Q: How long must each piece be?
A: Each presentation should be at least 25 minutes and no longer than 90 minutes.
Q: What are the requirements:
A: Must be a play, musical, one-man/woman show, performance art piece, dance piece, original or existing show. Must be able to be performed in a small venue for 50 people. The committee is especially looking for unique, eclectic submissions with a strong vision.
Q: How may performances will we need to do?
Each of the 16 groups must do a minimum of 1 performance on Friday evening, 2 on Saturday, and 1 on Sunday. Minimum of 4 performances for the entire weekend. More can be negotiated with Festival Staff. Some groups did as many as 12 last year.
Q: What will this cost me? What do I get?
A: Each producing organization must pay the $250 participating fee. All participation fees must be collected by May 1st, 2018. The Festival will provide each producing organization with a climate controlled space in which to perform, chairs and one volunteer to monitor and assist at the venue. The space will be within walking distance of all other performances and Bellevue Avenue (Hammonton, NJ’s Mainstreet).
Jersey Fringe will also handle a large deal of marketing, program printing, social media presence and more. Jersey Fringe will handle all ticket sales prior to the weekend and all weekend long.
Q: Can I make a profit?
A: The only cost to you is the participation fee. The space is free. The producing organization will get 50% of all ticket sales. A full breakdown will be provided along with a company check within three weeks of the final Fringe date. Producing organizations may also sell merchandise, etc. The most successful groups have fundraised for all of their costs so their profit check is in fact strictly profit.
Q: When do we get the space?
A: You will be able to move into the space the day before the Festival for set up and rehearsals. You can also rehearse on Friday up until show time.
Q: How about sound and lights?
A: Each venue will have proper electric for you to operate any of your technical needs. You are responsible for your own tech. SPELLCASTER PRODUCTIONS, a festival sponsor, is offering 20% off of weekend rentals (light trees, sound gear, etc)
Q: I have a very tech heavy show. I need a lot of space.
A: Unfortunately, most of our spaces cannot handle tech heavy shows or productions with large casts. These are primarily basements, banquet rooms, warehouses, etc. If you have a dance show with a cast of 12, we most likely cannot accommodate you in 2018.
Q: What if I have more questions.
A: Please email firstname.lastname@example.org. All questions will be answered quickly.
