Call for Submissions: The Z Fringe Festival is Announced for April 2023

Virginia Beach - Art that pushes the envelope is taking over The Z this April. The Z Fringe Festival is now accepting submissions of unique creative works for a weekend of adventurous theater and performance art.

Artists of all kinds are invited to take part in this new festival, and are encouraged to submit pieces that may span multiple genres.

“Monologues and new plays are just the tip of the iceberg,” said The Z’s Marketing Director, Jessi DiPette. “We are really looking forward to seeing new pieces of physical theatre, music, and hopefully even performance art like aerial silks or magic!”

Artists may submit pieces for 15-90 minute time slots, and will receive 50% of the ticket fees for their performance. The festival also offers emerging artists the opportunity to perform their new work on a professional stage, as artists will receive professional technical support in The Z’s state-of-the-art facilities.

Selected works will perform on one of the three Z stages, and the festival slate includes 2 new pieces produced by The Z and The Z Fringe Co-Producing Artists, Jason Kypros and Brittney Harris.
