Shoestring Theater Festival

Ghost Light Players, in partnership with Enter Stage Left Theater, presents the Shoestring Theater Festival. The Festival is a chance for local theater artists to gather in a community setting and perform works of their choice.  There are no restrictions on genre, style, or scope.  There are, in fact, only two restrictions:  time and money.  

Purchase Tickets to the Festival:

Tickets are $15 for Adults and $12 for Seniors and Children under 12. One ticket allows you access to the entire festival – that’s eight shows for the price of one!

When and Where It Is:

Ghost Light Players’ Shoestring Theater Festival will be on Saturday, September 7, beginning at 12 Noon. 

The Festival will take place at The Hopkinton Center for the Arts at 98 Hayden Rowe Street in Hopkinton, MA. For more venue information, including parking and accessibility, please visit their website.

What It Is:

Rule#1:  Each production is restricted to a total budget of $50.00.  

Rule#2:  Each production must have a maximum run time of 50 minutes. 

Rule#3:  Each production will have 10 minutes total for setup and breakdown (to be divided up according to the production needs).

Other than that, anything goes.  Want to mount a musical?  Do it.  Want to perform Greek tragedy?  Have at.  Want to workshop an original piece?  We invite you to join us.  The more diverse, the better.  Aim high, disrupt expectations, have a blast.  We can’t wait to see what you put together. 

Who It Is:

Ghost Light Players and Enter Stage Left Theater will be hosting and running the festival. Participants can be from an established theater company, or a group of theater artists who come together for just this production.  A cast of 40, or a one-person show.  There are no restrictions on cast size, crew size, or affiliation with an existing theater company.  All are welcome to participate, as long as they follow our Rules. 

How to Sign Up:

Our festival registration is now closed, and we have the maximum number of teams registered. We look forward to seeing what these intrepid theater-makers create!
