Just the facts

Introducing a new standardized method for how independent theatre producers can promote their work on Theatre Is Territory:

If you would like your show info to be posted, provide the following info in the manner prescribed below. No promises that every project submitted will be posted, but there is no charge for this opportunity to increase the profile of your production. Although Theatre is Territory is Toronto-based, it has an increasingly global readership. Feel free to submit work from any location on earth.

The idea behind this project is that it will become a resource to independent producers to increase the profile of their shows.  These producers are almost always working with razor thin budgets outside of any subscription series. They rarely have full page ads in weekly papers and posters on the way to every restaurant bathroom. They could really use a little free publicity.

Occasionally there will be a post about an exciting high-profile production, but in general this is an attempt to even the public awareness playing field, while letting our readership know about shows they might not be aware of.
