Call for Proposal

Community Stage Series: Free Collaborative Performances

The Arts Council of Princeton is please to present a Call for Proposal for its Community Stage Performing Art Series. Community Stage productions are free and open to the public, held in collaboration with local artistic groups and organizations. Community Stage programming enables the Arts Council’s Solley Theater to act as an accessible space for community partnerships and high-quality performing arts experiences.

The Community Stage Series is booked on a rolling basis and will be scheduled at the discretion of the Arts Council, no less than 8 weeks from receiving a proposal.

Community Stage performers are local not-for-profit groups that are enthusiastic co-promoters and require no sound/lighting production. For example, a local children’s chorus group meets the criteria, but an individual’s child ballet recital does not.

Community Stage Performers ARE:
– performing in affiliation with a non-profit/community organization to present music, dance, spoken word, theater, etc.

Community Stage Performers ARE NOT:
– individuals/bands/professional artists looking for performance space.  For more information about the ACP’s rental space for recitals, click here.

The Arts Council retains the right to approve/deny Community Stage opportunities at its discretion.

To be considered for a Community Stage Performance:

If you believe your group fits the above criteria, please email Program Coordinator Melissa Kuscin at with the subject line Community Stage Performance Proposal.
