We are proud to announce the 16th annual Next Stage Theatre Festival will take place October 18-29, 2023. In addition to this exciting date shift, the festival will be returning to Daniels Spectrum for the second year, in both Ada Slaight Hall and the Aki Studio, presenting a dynamic array of works.
Applications will open NEXT WEEK and close Friday May 13, 2022. Please note, the final deadline to apply is Monday, May 16, 2022 by 12:00PM EDT. We are suggesting Friday May 13th as a deadline to help conceptualize a buffer for those who may benefit from assistance with planning. There is no longer a fee to apply, thought donations are warmly accepted.
Selected applicants will be sent offers by the week of July 18, 2022 at the latest.
Unlike previous Next Stage application schedules, for Next Stage 2023, all selected companies will have the opportunity to apply for two different grant cycles for OAC and TAC. We highly recommend that selected companies use this extended timeline to their advantage!
