Student Production Application and Requirements

The Fall 2021 Black Box Series will be presented with both virtual and in-person opportunities.

Production Options

  • Students may apply to produce a more traditional virtual Black Box Series production that, if approved, will receive funding and design/tech support.
  • Or, students may choose to produce an unfunded virtual lab show or reading. 

Securing Rights

Rights are an important consideration when choosing your intended production. Students planning on producing a licensed work of theatre should research both the traditional and streaming (if applicable) rights for their work. Similarly, students planning on producing a dance production should research the music rights for any music they intend to use with the understanding that permission to use the music is necessary.

Design and Technology Elements

Please consider design tech needs and describe them to the best of your knowledge at this time on the form.

Safety Protocols

All productions must follow Kent State University's Flashes Safe Eight Principles throughout the rehearsal and performance process. To review the Flashes Safe Eight, visit:
