Classic City Fringe Festival 2017 Performer Application

Welcome to the Classic City Fringe Festival Performer Application for 2017! We would like to thank you for your interest in participating in the 2017 Classic City Fringe Festival (aka CCFF) and wish you all the best in your performances.

We try to accept all applications, but in the case of having too many application we will fill all available performance slots by using a "first come, first served" selection process based on the date we receive your completed application. It is advisable that all applicants get their applications turned in a.s.a.p. to be among those selected early in this process. Once accepted, you may be required to pay a production fee. This fee will vary depending upon the scale and requirements of your production (see below for production fee info). We will stop taking applications on Aug 31st, 2017.


There are two types of Productions for which an artist or group of artists can apply. The "GENERAL PRODUCTION" option is for those who wish to focus on the production of their art and leave all the technical aspects and scheduling to CCFF. The "BOOK YOUR OWN VENUE" (aka BYOV) option is for artists or promoters who wish to book their own Showcase and take care of all technical details of their own show. CCFF will advertise and promote all of these productions together under the shared promotional umbrella of the festival. General Productions are also split up into different categories (Short, Basic, or Full productions) based on the length of the production, see more here:

SHORT: This category is for short performances with running times under 30 minutes. (i.e. buskers, stand-up, monologue, music, etc.) We will be grouping shorter productions together into one Showcase at one of our Fringe Venues, and the performers will split the production costs/payout equally.

BASIC: This category is for Productions over 30 minutes. These may have more backstage, setup, or tech needs. We will be grouping shorter productions together into one Showcase at one of our Fringe Venues, and the performers will split the production costs/payout equally. Where applicable, CCFF may provide an on-site technician to assist as needed.

FULL: This category is for shows running 45 minutes or longer. For these Full Productions we may require you to cover all production costs as we will not be able to group you with other productions at one of our Fringe Venues. Where applicable, CCFF may provide an on-site technician to assist as needed.

More info for BYOV: Book Your Own Venue participants will of course have to do more work themselves. As a BYOV it is your responsibility to take care of all technical details of your own showcase including: booking, scheduling, running the door, have your own tech personnel, and more. Also, your application must include the time and place of your performance Showcase (If this is unknown at the time of the application leave that info blank, but be sure to figure it out as soon as possible so we can include that info in promotions). CCFF will advertise your Showcase on our website and in the CCFF Program. We will also have all BYOV Showcases reviewed by our legal rep to determine that legal issues such as permits and permissions are addressed. If all legal hoops have not been jumped through we will inform you of the remaining steps to take. You must accept CCFF ALL ACCESS passes for admittance to your show.


Applicants may be required to pay production fees which will go toward covering all aspects of the festival costs including: venue production costs, promotions, technical support and house management. (NOTE: We may have an opportunity for each performer or group to have their production fees, or a portion thereof, covered by Sponsors or through our CCFF Fundraisers, so that no performer has to come out of pocket to be a part of this festival).

Since different productions have different needs, CCFF works to determine a fair production fee for each Production. We will determine each applicant's production fee individually based on criteria such as the length of your show, technical requirements, and set-up and breakdown time, and the costs of staging that show at a particular venue. For General Productions, the Festival will pay the venue directly out of money collected from performer production fees. For BYOV shows, the performers work directly with the venue to book their shows. BYOV performers pay no production fee to CCFF, so any venue fees are paid directly to the venue by the performers.


All of the CCFF Showcases will require all attendees to present their "CCFF ALL ACCESS" pass for admittance, or pay $5 (or more) at the door. These CCFF ALL ACCESS passes can be purchased by attendees in advance from our website, and will also be available during the event at our CCFF Box-Office (location to be announced).

All showcases will receive 80% of their box-office receipts from the door of their shows, plus $2 per CCFF ALL ACCESS pass presented at the door. For showcases that have multiple artist productions paired together we will split total payout evenly among individual productions in that showcase. If a BYOV Production wishes to provide their own door person they will keep 100% of their incoming door, and must accept all CCFF ALL ACCESS passes presented for admittance to their showcase. CCFF will cut checks within 30 days after festival's close and mail your production's box-office proceeds to the mailing address you provide on your application.


When you turn in your application you will also be required to turn in all legal papers applicable. Any permits for public performances not covered by CCFF venues are the responsibility of the artist, and performers must secure the appropriate rights and permissions. Any artist or performer caught using someone else’s work without permission will be removed from the festival.

Need Rehearsal Time? CCFF will try to schedule rehearsal time and space for all General Performers. Our intent is to provide performers with time at their venue during the day. If we cannot achieve this we will let you know. All BYOV performers will be responsible for setting up their own rehearsal time.

Classic City Fringe Festival may have multiple Free Fringe Stages during the weekend of the Festival. General Performers and BYOV artists will be encouraged to perform short busking style previews for the public to promote their acts. CCFF will schedule these performances, so please put in a request if you would care to participate. We can’t promise to fulfill all requests but we will do our best.


Note: Please fill in all required spaces to the best of your ability and with the most information you can provide. This will help us in organizing our scheduling and promotional efforts. There are areas of this form that are only for specific types of applicants, so be sure to fill in only those spaces that apply to you and your production.
