Northwest Creator Residency Program

Village Theatre announces open submissions for its new Northwest Creator Residency program, seeking Seattle-area Black, Indigenous and POC artistic creators of all experience levels, including but not limited to writers, composers, performers, choreographers, directors, designers, and producers, to begin work on any element of a new musical. If you make any kind of performing art we want to hear from you. We are interested in fostering your humanity as an artist and are not specifically interested in any one particular project. Creators will be chosen based on their artistic vision and residency goals. Artists are encouraged to bring their unique voice and point of view to their project and to create what is most present in their artistic spirit at this moment.

Eight creators will each receive a $1,000 residency to begin work on a new piece of musical theatre to be developed in digital residence during the 2020-2021 season plus additional support as needed to continue development including but not limited to table reads, research support, and additional artistic staff to collaborate with (dramaturg, consultant, etc.). This new residency program will be produced by Co- Producer Alex Crozier and Associate Artistic Director Brandon Ivie. Timeline of the residency is flexible and determined by the creator. Since the main goal of the residency is general creator support, there is no required minimum length of the work you create.
