STRAWBERRY THEATRE WORKSHOP IS ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR 2023 STRAWBERRY JAM
Strawberry Theatre Workshop
About the project and the company
ABOUT STRAWBERRY JAM:
Strawberry Jam is a five-week arts festival dedicated to providing local directors with the opportunity to grow their craft through practice. Motivated by an observation that Seattle’s outstanding acting and playwriting communities are fueled by experimental forums not availabe to directors, SJAM was born in 2022 as a unique public workshop with the director at its center. Now in its second year, SJAM features veteran and emerging artists alike, working with texts ranging from classics to original works. For its audience, the event is a wide-ranging celebration of styles, visions, and voices packed into fifteen nights of relentless energy at 12th Ave Arts… All that makes a Strawberry Jam.
ABOUT STRAWBERRY THEATRE WORKSHOP:
Founded in 2004 by Greg Carter, Strawberry Theatre Workshop is a professional theatre company dedicated to socially engaged work of the highest caliber. Strawshop is a Stranger Genius Award winner, a six-time Seattle Times Footlight Award winner, and the only company to be nominated for a TPS Gregory Award for Outstanding Production four years in a row. Strawshop is one of three companies selected to operate 12th Avenue Arts, a center for theatre that opened in 2015 with Strawshop’s critically acclaimed “Our Town.”
Proposals for the 2023 Strawberry Jam are now being accepted at Seattle’s Strawberry Theatre Workshop. SJAM23 is a PAID performance opportunity that provides budgets up to $3000 for projects that will be produced in a festival at 12th Ave Arts during June 8- July 8, 2023. To be considered, directors must submit an application by March-15. The final SJAM roster will be announced April-15. For details, download the brochure, available at: https://www.strawshop.org/sjam
Strawberry Jam is not an original works festival, though new writing is not prohibited. The focus is on the director's vision for realizing a story onstage. Applicants do not need to submit scripts, résumés, or video samples—they do not need to show a traditional 'pedigree' of theatre directing training. Just a passion and confidence for completing a project and making the most of the opportunity if selected for SJAM23.
