Short Play Budget
Each short play director has a budget of $50. Please get receipts for any purchases and submit for reimbursement at the end of the Festival.
Ground plot for TBG is on their webpage. Sandy Yaklin, our Set Designer, is working on the placement of the flats and this will be available shortly. Estro is performed using a unit set, which means the directors will be selecting from a limited number of set pieces.
For the short plays, the actors will be called upon to do the transitions between plays. The details will be worked out during “Transition Tech.”
Business cards are being ordered. We will advise when they are available. Any questions send to your program producer and/or, you guessed it, estrogenius.festival.com
