Proof read your responses before submitting.
By hitting "Save", you will have the opportunity to save your responses, email yourself a copy, and return to your application later. By hitting "Verify", you will be able to see which required fields you have missed before attempting to submit. And, of course, by hitting "Submit" you will send your application in for review and will no longer be able to edit your responses. The "Submit" button will not appear until the application window opens (at midnight on Labor Day, that is the midnight between Sunday and Monday), but you are more than welcome to cue up all of your responses ahead of time.
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 one confirmation of your language in November, and you will have one chance to make changes in your text in december. However, once you've submitted this application, changing your show title will incur a $50 fee.
Wherever possible, respond to all the questions. Where a choice is offered, select the most appropriate option even if it's not a perfect match. If you have no response to a non-required question, leave it blank. The form can not be submitted if required fields have been left unanswered. We strongly recommend testing your application using the "Verify" button WELL BEFORE the window opens at midnight, so you have time to rectify any blanks.
Begin responding below, and break a leg.
ALL correspondence will be sent to the PRIMARY CONTACT PERSON. Only the primary contact person is authorized to submit or make changes to show and company information. We will communicate via email so check your inbox regularly - and make sure to add FRIGID to your contact list so our messages don't go to your spam box. It is also helpful to follow FRIGID on all social platforms at @FRIGIDNewYork, for updates on the Halloween Lottery, in the event you are not one of the "First Fifteen". FRIGID CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR MESSAGES LOST IN YOUR SPAM BOX/TRASH BOX. Please add firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com to your safe list.
It's recommended that the Secondary Contact is someone involved in your production - Stage Manager, Producer, Company Manager, co-star, etc.
IMPORTANT! This is the person/company WE WILL WRITE A CHECK TO AT THE END OF THE FESTIVAL - only they will be able to cash it and they must be legally able to be paid for producing or performing work in the US.
Proof read your responses.
KEEP A COPY OF YOUR RESPONSES.
ENTER INFO CAREFULLY - this is what we will use when printing the brochure. REMEMBER - there's a $50 USD processing fee for any changes to the title after application is submitted.
THIS WILL BE PRINTED IN OUR BROCHURE so write carefully!
Do you have permission from the necessary professional associations - Equity, AFTRA, etc?
Describe the sound, lighting, projection, and spacial needs of your show - you will have a chance to update this later if you get into the festival, and we reserve the right to adjust offered technical amenities based on availability and time constraints.
At the FRIGID Festival 100% of box office ticket sales go to the individual companies, except for a processing fee charged to patrons on advance ticket orders (by the Ticketing service company, and not by FRIGID) and Frequent Flyer passes.
All performing companies that get a spot in the festival are REQUIRED to BE HERE for a minimum of 12 out of the 19 days of the festival.
Keep in mind that if you miss a full week at the start or at the end of the festival, you will have a harder time getting an audience to know your show is worth seeing.
Please consider ALL possible conflicts. This information will be used to determine your performance schedule. After your performance is officially scheduled in December, NO CHANGES ARE POSSIBLE. Keep in mind that the more limits we have in performer availability, the more likely undesirable schedule will be created.
Please list any scheduling requirements within the limits of our previous disclaimer above. If necessary, it's best to list the times that you are NOT available.
FRIGID will email a confirmation of receipt of your application once it is received. Payment of the Application Fee ($35) will be processed upon submission of your application and must be approved for the application to be validated. If your company secures a place in The Festival as a participant, FRIGID will then charge a baseline Performance Fee based on the lowest priced venue ($750). THE FIRST 15 APPLICATIONS ARE AUTOMATICALLY SECURED AND BILLED. If your company is assigned a more expensive venue in December ($1100), the difference will be billed upon venue assignment in mid December. Applicants drawn at the Halloween Lottery will automatically be billed $750 on Halloween. The Wait List drawn on Halloween will be notified if a slot becomes available. Only if a waitlisted applicant accepts this slot will their performance fee be charged. All withdrawals from The Festival must be made in writing by the Participating Company's primary contact. If a Participating Company withdraws, notification must be received by December 01, 2019 in order to receive a 50% refund of the performance fee. A Participating Company that withdraws after this date will forfeit 100% of its performance fee. Applicants on the Waitlist may withdraw at any time at no charge. Participating Companies accepted into the Festival cannot sell or transfer their spot in the Festival to another party. If a Participating Company is found to have sold or transferred its space, both companies will be removed from the Festival and the original performance fee will be forfeited to the Festival. The Festival reserves the right to cancel confirmed applications should circumstances arise which in the opinion of Festival staff would interfere with the mounting of the production or the festival as a whole. The Festival will accept no liability for performance cancellations as a result of natural phenomena or the actions of third parties or as a result of a performance venue's suitability or lack thereof for any particular purpose. The Festival makes no guarantee whatsoever regarding the suitability of any particular venue for performance presentation. In the event of a loss of a venue (or an unforeseen loss of Festival revenue needed to operate a venue) the Festival reserves the right to cancel the performances in that venue. In such an event, cancelled groups will be placed at the top of the waiting list or they may withdraw from the festival and receive a full refund of their application and performance fee. The Festival collects and processes performer box office receipts as a volunteer service only. Any liability for the loss or theft of box office revenue at any time is borne solely by the Participating Company. Each Participating Company is welcome to provide its own box office staff as long as all independent staff members attend a FRIGID box office training session prior to the Festival opening. All Participating Companies agree to adhere to the laws of New York City and New York State and the policies, procedures and safety restrictions of the theater spaces. All Participating Companies are obligated to act in the best interests of the Festival community. The Festival reserves the right to cancel any or all performances of any Participating Companies not adhering to these regulations. Upon acceptance to the Festival, Participating Companies are required to submit all requested materials and information in full and on time. Failure to do so may result in the Participating Company’s removal from the Festival without refund. All promotional and publicity materials must refer to the Participating Company’s production as " (Participating Company/Individual) in association with FRIGID Festival present (Title)". Submission of this application and subsequent payment shall indicate your acceptance of the terms and conditions contained herein. PLEASE CHECK THE BOX BELOW TO INDICATE AGREEMENT.
