Call for proposals

The Franklin College of Arts and Sciences’ theatre and film studies department is accepting proposals until Oct. 15 for shows that should be considered for next year’s season.

Proposals from other departments, faculty and graduate students for projects that would provide opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration are especially encouraged.

In the past few seasons, the theatre and film studies department has collaborated successfully with faculty from a number of departments. The collaborations include working with the classics department on Trojan Women, collaborating with faculty member Robert Moser, associate professor of Portuguese, in mounting the world premiere of his Translation of Augusto Boal’s The Misadventures of Uncle McBuck, and this season working with Martin Kagel, head of the Germanic and Slavic languages department to create an international conference on playwright George Tabori that will coincide with University Theatre’s production of Mein Kampf.

Submitted proposals need not be formal. Just include the name of the play, playwright and the rationale for a production at UGA.
