Submitting a Show to Us

You may submit your idea for a show at any time and we will consider them as we have needs for new shows. We will get back to you if we are interested in finding a time for your submission – please know that we are usually scheduled out about 3 months in advance at any time.  It may take up to 3 weeks after you’ve submitted before you will hear of our decision. Thank you for your patience.  Below are some guidelines for your submission.

Got an idea for a show? Want to do it at The Annoyance?

Great! Here are some things you should know. We have 2 primary show models:

 

  1. Shows we fully produce as Annoyance Productions shows, that are owned by us. We cover all agreed-upon production costs including rehearsal space, posters and publicity and the theatre retains all profits. 

  2. Rentals. The person (or group) submitting the show or idea is responsible for all production costs, and receives 60% of the box office proceeds.

 

We usually choose ideas that we feel will be a good match for our audience and the style of shows we generally do. It is particularly helpful if the cast has had experience in improvisation, and if there is a Director attached who has had some experience directing original material. (It’s a whole different ball game than directing previously scripted material). Submissions are decided upon by our Artistic Director, Mick Napier, and our production staff. If we decide not to produce your idea, please know that it doesn’t mean we hate you, or don’t ever want to work with you, or even that we don’t like your idea – it means we don’t think that it is the right thing for our theatre at this time.

 

We don’t generally produce shows that were previously written/produced elsewhere.

If that all looks good to you, please submit your show to us!
