MITF: Fall Variety Acts
October 26 – November 20, 2017

Dear Friend in the Theatre, 
MITF: Fall is seeking Variety Acts. MITF: Fall combines some of the most popular features of past MITF festivals: short plays and musicals, a Variety division, the Short Play Lab, and staged readings. The Festival will take place at the WorkShop Theater's Main Stage and Jewel Box Theaters and will run from October 26 - November 20, 2017.

The Variety division spans cabaret, magic, improv, sketch comedy, standup, and burlesque. Acts can be solo or group affairs, so long as they fit within an hour, including setup and strike, and so long as they bring their own music director and so forth. The Festival provides a keyboard, mike, and amp. Each act will be given one performance with the possibility of added performances to those acts with the best advance ticket sales-Festival schedule permitting. Shows receive a 1-hour tech rehearsal and a share of the profits, if any.

To submit a Variety Act: Mark it clearly "MITF: Fall," and that it is a variety act. Please also include video reels (you tube, etc.), of your act as part of your submission application. We'll curate the entries as they come in. Please send all Variety submissions to:  
We look forward to watching your acts!

Submission Deadline For Variety Is September 20, 2017.

The Festival will take place at the Workshop Theater's Jewel Box Theater, 312 W. 36th St., NYC. MITF: Fall runs from October 29 - November 20, 2017.
