3 // THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX and GET SOME FACE TIME

  • HELP!!!

    We LOST OUR SPACE FOR C:10.5.
    • WE WONT HAVE A C:10 UNLESS WE HAVE A SPACE TO DO IT
    • We are looking for a new venue for our C:10.5 production this Fall. 
    • If you have any leads on theaters or other non-traditional spaces that could be used...
      • The C:10 Production Team (Ava, Brian H., David J., Sayra and Robert) will have information about which spaces have already been contacted, and can follow up with any new leads. 
      • Email thecollective9@gmail.com.
  • LAST CHANCE OPPORTUNITY found by Ensemble Member Michael Abbott Jr.!
    • A project can be submitted to be considered for viewing this summer in the Amphitheater on the water in Williamsburg. 
      • It is a not a money-making venture, but would be a lot of exposure.

      • Deadline for proposals: May 30th.
