Main Stage Requirements for 2020

    Hello hivemind!
    I was wondering if anyone knew when the requirements for 2020 Main Stage productions will be released. I am curious how much of the information will change due to the festival's relocation.
    Thank you for any and all leads.
    Best,

    Hi Chiara,

    Thanks very much for your interest in the Thespian Festival Main Stage.  We will be posting all the main stage information very shortly, however, most of the requirements will not be changing.  We ask that requests for adjudication be submitted by October 15.  The biggest changes will be in the size and dimensions of each of the main stage theatres. The IU Auditorium will seat 3,154 and the Musical Arts Center (MAC) will seat 1,460.

    Following are the dimensions for the IU Auditorium:

    Proscenium (maximum opening)

    54'8"

    Stage Depth

    36' (to last avail working lines)

    Height (floor to grid)

    70'

    Wing Space

    SL – 20'-0", SR – 25'-1" to the flyrail

    Overall wide of the stages

    99'-9"

    Size of the orchestra lift

    13' us/ds x 50'4" W (curved)

    Size of the orchestra pit

    Additional 5' x 50' available
    if row 1-2 is removed


    And following are the dimensions for the MAC:

    Proscenium (maximum opening)

     

    48'-68'w x 0-32'h

    Stage Depth

     

    Full – 64'-1", PL- US LS 55'-2"

    Height (floor to grid)

     

    110'

    Wing Space

     

    51' SR & 51' SL

    Overall wide of the stages

     

    190'-1"

    Size of the orchestra lift

     

    DS 64' x 6'-6" US 59' x 10'-6" both curved

    Size of the orchestra pit

     

    ~70' x 20'-9"

     I hope that helps.  Let me know if you have other questions.

    Nancy
