OPEN CALL - Free Theatre in the Parks 2020
For several years, the City of West Hollywood's Arts Division has presented FREE THEATRE IN THE PARKS. The City is seeking proposals for the 2020 season (typically a run of 8 to 12 performances sometime between June-September). While Shakespearean productions and adaptations have proved very popular with the City’s audiences in the past, the City is also open to exploring other genres that would be appropriate for an outdoor public setting.
