Submitting a Show or Film to Us
Got an idea for a show? Want to do it at The Annoyance? Great! Here are some things you should know. First, we mostly do our own stuff. Occasionally we do rentals – those would generally take place on a weekday late night. We do not do show rentals Thursday – Sunday. The third option is that we get a submission for an original* show idea that we think we’d like to produce. That would mean that we would provide rehearsal space and help bring the project from idea to production. 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 written/produced already elsewhere.
The submission period will be open from February 22nd through March 1st. Check back HERE to submit during that time.
It may take up to a month after submissions have closed before you will hear of our decision. Thank you for your patience.
