What a marvelous night we had last weekend with all kinds of amazing talent coming out to perform for us and the fabulous Melissa Hesse shooting these photos. I wanted to add a slideshow so even if you didn't quite make it you can see the shenanigans we were up too. If you weren't able to make it and want to contribute, please click over to our GiveMN page, but otherwise just enjoy these beautiful photos of a truly queer and querulous night. MUCH love to the fabulous performers featured, especially Mad M. Moxie, featured in the header shot.
Scripts are now being accepted for Gadfly Theatre Productions’ annual Final Frontier Festival. The Final Frontier Festival is a one-act play festival exploring the intersection of queer, feminist, and geek culture.
Vampires! Haunted houses! Deranged serial killers who may or may not wear your face like a mask! That’s right goblins and ghouls, the theme for this year’s Final Frontier Festival will be Horror! So if you’ve been working on the next great zombie play, or have been toying with the idea of writing a kickass lady slasher play, then this festival is for you! Can you send a shiver up our spine with your queer and/or feminist horror scripts? That remains to be seen, but what is certain, is that the pentagrams have been drawn, the werewolves have howled, and the Final Frontier Festival: Horror is coming! Lock your doors, say your prayers, and send us your scripts!
Scripts should be no longer than forty five minutes, contain queer and/or feminist themes in a horror genre, and have minimal technical demands. We are seeking six one-acts to be performed in repertory over a two week run in the summer of 2015. Each show will receive four performances.
Interested parties should send an electronic copy of the script to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than January 31st, 2015.
Gadfly Theatre provides an artistic haven for audiences and artists, a place to explore, create, and open safe dialogues about queer and feminist issues.
