2015 Artist Application - Final Deadline May 16


As you may have noticed, we have been experiencing a few challenges with our MemberClicks on-line registration. Thank you to everyone that has submitted their applications already and apologies to anyone that may have had any difficulty. We have decided to extend ARTIST APPLICATIONS for Showcase 2015 deadline for one additional week, with all applications and materials now due by FRIDAY, MAY 16.


As  the field of Performing Arts for Youth continues to grow, presenters are looking for more and new work to bring to their audiences whether for a school field trip series, a family series, a festival or a special event.  And those presenters continue to say that they see the "the highest caliber of work" at Showcase each year -- the only conference dedicated to presenting touring performances for young audiences.


Perhaps you are still deciding whether to submit an artist application?  You now have until May 16, 2014. Please share this notice with anyone that may be interested in submitting an application.


Don't miss out!  Apply to present your work in Philadelphia at Showcase 2015, whether it's:

  •          Theatre
  •          Dance
  •          Musical Theatre
  •          Physical Comedy or Mime
