Schools will not be allowed to present a Mainstage show at two consecutive Iowa Festivals.
Directors: In order to qualify to direct a Mainstage show at the Iowa Festival, you must have directed a Studio Theatre production at the Iowa Festival in a prior year.
All Mainstage productions will be charged a $500 performance/adjudication fee. If you do not want to be adjudicated, your school will still have to pay the $500 fee.
All Mainstage show content must be appropriate for a high school audience.
If selected, the director of your production will need to complete a performance contract (complete with technical packet and details) and attend an on-site meeting with the technical staff at the University of Northern Iowa during the month of October to finalize all technical and load-in/load-out details.
If you have questions about the Mainstage application, please contact Tom Stephens, Festival Co-Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
