The Vortex is a blackbox theatre with moveable seatbanks. There are 6 basic seat bank configurations
(See: Theatre specs and seatbank designs.pdf). Please consider which will work best for
your production. Configurations can extend the set design, involve the audience with the action,
connect the audience and actors, define an historical period – what will your choice do?
Why are you passionate to share the story? How will it affect the audience and the actors
to be a part of it? What do you want the audience to leave with? What do you want your
creative team to take away from this experience?

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. Honorarium schedule.pdf
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.
