The First 15 are in and I am very excited about some of these. We are now holding up to 4 spots for the CAFF Touring lottery. The remaining spots for a total of 30 festival shows will be assigned during the "Halloween Lottery" on Monday October 31. Up to 10 additional companies will be drawn for the Waiting List during the Halloween Lottery. Application cut-off time is Halloween: 12 NOON on Oct 31, 2018.

Participating companies receive 5 or 6 performances and keep 100% of the box office.

Take care when providing us with information.

Proof read your responses before submitting. Most information may be changed down the line, ONLY changing a show title involves a $50 fee.

FRIGID will reproduce data EXACTLY as it is written here - we do NOT correct improper capitals or misspellings. Our assumption is that you have included such anomalies as a marketing or artistic choice. You will be emailed a confirmation of your language in November, and you will have a chance to make changes in your text. Changing show titles has a $50 fee.
