Announcing the Stage Rights + Rave Theater Festival Publishing Award.

Rave Theater Festival - the new theater festival that launched last year - has announced that it will partner with Stage Rights to create The Stage Rights + Rave Publishing Award. This award will be given to a new show being presented in the 2020 Rave Theater Festival. The award-winning show will join the Stage Rights licensing catalog and will be offered to professional, stock and amateur theater companies and producers across the country and beyond. 

The festival is helmed by founder by Tony Award-winning producer (and co-author of Miss Abigail's Guide to Dating, Mating, and Marriage) Ken Davenport. The application deadline has been extended through March 8, 2020, and the festival will begin on July 24, 2020.
