The deadline for applying to bring a Main Stage Production to the State Festival is December 15 each year. Before applying, please carefully review ALL information contained and linked to from this page. Please carefully read the Main Stage Production SOP.
Each year, a number of Main Stage Productions by Oregon Thespian Troupes are selected to perform at the State Festival.
To have a production considered for one of the available Main Stage slots, read and follow the information and guidelines found here.
The application deadline for Main Stage Productions is December 15 (productions performed by the second week in January are eligible).
In addition to having your production considered, you may request a live response to your production (which becomes a part of your application). Live responses are encouraged, but are not required. They must be scheduled through the Main Stage Production selection committee according to the timeline outlined in the application process.
Note that advance planning and preparation are crucial to the success of a Main Stage Production at State. Application and request deadlines are important for your fellow Thespian Troupe Directors, who have volunteered to facilitate the selection process.
If you are planning to have a main stage production considered for State, please review the technical specifications and stage layout of The Historic Elsinore Theatre (our State venue) so you can plan for a potential presentation at this site.
