Arts Alive Theatre Submission

Arts Alive logo

Theatre performance(s) for Arts Alive! may be chosen from online submissions through the West Virginia Department of Education or at the West Virginia State Thespian Festival. Both traditional and non-traditional theatre submissions will be considered. Traditional theatre submissions include monologues, scenes, and musical theatre solos or duets. Non-traditional submissions can include, but are not limited to, puppetry, stage combat, improv, reader’s theatre, masques, and other "fringe" theatre performances.

If you will not be attending the West Virginia State Thespian Festival in March but have something you would like to be considered for Arts Alive!, please follow these submission guidelines for alternative consideration:

  • Prepare a video of your theatrical performance. This video does not have to be from an actual performance but should be near-performance ready. For traditional theatre submissions, students should be off-book.
  • Musical Theatre submissions can include dialogue and dance.
  • If there are no specific costumes, actors should dress in all black for the video.
  • Content must not contain material or language that may be considered inappropriate for a family-centered audience.
  • Suggested length: must be 5 minutes or less.
  • Include all relevant program information (e.g. title, piece, performers) and costume and design ideas if applicable.
  • If chosen, you will be notified by March 28, 2018.

All work must be received by March 23, 2018.

If you have questions about THEATRE submissions, please contact Michael Stiles
