Test Drive Submissions

This spring, Bad Dog is excited to (re-)introduce the Test Drive - a mini-festival celebrating fresh new ways of presenting improvised comedy and unscripted theatre. Test Drive is the spring counterpart to our annual Summer Blockbuster Week. But whereas Blockbuster Week focuses heavily on story and genre, drawing inspiration from the world of film & television - the Test Drive blows things wide open, encouraging participants to propose bold (and/or ridiculous) new ways of approaching thematic longform, shortform, multi-disciplinary and experimental improvisation.

Have an idea you’ve always wondered about taking to the stage? An improv show you wish existed, but somehow doesn’t seem to already? This is your chance to make it happen!

At the end of the week, one show will be selected to receive a cash prize of $300 and Bad Dog production support for an extended run.

The 2018 Test Drive runs from March 19-24, 2018.
