This summer, we're teaming up with Freshold Theatre and Tesco, to provide a unique opportunity for local theatre groups and performers to be part of an eclectic festival of street theatre.
WOW! Festival, taking place outside The Public each Wednesday throughout the summer holidays, will feature a diverse mix of acts from dance to circus performers, one-man theatre to story-telling, in a celebration of local creative talent.
We're now seeking further acts to be involved in this exciting showcase, from performing arts groups to one-man showmen.
For more information about the festival and to download an application form simply visit www.fresholdtheatre.co.uk. The deadline for applications is Monday 20 May. Successful applications will be informed by Monday 27 May.
Artists selected to participate in the festival can choose to either receive a fee for their performance or have access to free rehearsal space within The Public for future projects.
Linda Saunders, Managing Director of The Public said,
“The WOW! Festival is an fantastic opportunity for local theatre companies and artists to showcase their work to a mass audience. With the festival coinciding with the launch of the New Square Development, this summer there’s set to be a real buzz in West Bromwich town centre and we’re incredibly excited to be at the heart of it.”
Hannah Graham, Artistic Director at Freshold Theatre added,
“We’re really looking forward to be teaming up with The Public this summer and being part of their exciting programme. WOW! Festival will provide an excellent opportunity for those who do not usually have chance to experience live performance to see a fantastic mix of really talented artists for free.”
