If accepted, The Vortex Theatre will produce the play; i.e. pay royalties, provide publicity and facilities (with supervision), staff the box office, provide a budget to cover materials, paint, costumes, etc., and provide honorariums for the designers, director and stage manager.

We cannot design or build your set, design lights or construct costumes, though we can help you find people for these jobs. You must recruit your own crew. (Again, we can help.) A liaison will be appointed by the Board to work with you.
