Fringe Festival 2018

CTC Fringe Festival 2018

The CTC is proud to present its fourth annual Fringe Festival: a series of one-act plays showcasing up and coming directors, playwrights and actors over three nights of solid entertainment. For more information, check out our pages for our first, second, and third festivals.

All shows will be performed at Krudttønden. The performances will be Thursday 31 May, Friday 1 June and Saturday 2 June.

The festival is open to anyone keen to try out their directing skills without having to put on a full-length production. We welcome experienced directors, new directors and I-have-written-my-own-play-and-want-to-showcase-it directors.

Apply as a director

Applications for directors are now open. The application deadline is Friday, March 9th. After the deadline our selection committee will meet and announce the line-up for the festival.

Guidelines for play choice

One-act play (or musical)
Strict time limit of 30 minutes

Auditions for actors

We welcome actors of all experience levels to come audition for our Fringe Festival. With so many plays to cast we always need a wide-range of actors and there are lots of opportunities to get involved.

Audition info
April 7 & 8. You will only need to come one day.
Location to be determined.

To sign up for an audition time, or if you have any questions, please write to


Rehearsals will be arranged individually with the directors and held at a location of their choosing. All cast are expected to help with the get-out on Sunday, June 3.

Weekend Workshop

Once again, the CTC is pleased to offer a director’s workshop during the rehearsal process. A professional director will review and offer constructive feedback for all festival shows during a weekend workshop mid-way through the rehearsal process. The goal is to offer our directors and actors helpful critique to continue to develop their shows and increase the overall quality of the festival. This is a unique opportunity to work one-on-one with a professional director here in Copenhagen.

The workshop will be held May 5 & 6 — each show will be given a time slot on one of the days. Location to be determined.

This year’s workshop will be led by Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen.
Jeremy is a professional stage director, orginally from America, but living and working in Copenhagen, Denmark. He has a Master of Fine Arts Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (2008-11) and a Bachelor of Directing from Avila University-Kansas City (2000-04). Over the past 16 years, he has developed over 30 productions in the US and Denmark.


This year, three impartial members of a jury will watch all the final festival performances to determine winners in three categories. We will also poll our audience members to determine a “Best of Fest,” or People’s choice award. All festival shows will be considered for an award.

  1. Best Original Script or Adaptation
  2. Best Director
  3. Best Performance
  4. Best of Fest (People’s Choice)

The awards will be announced during the cast party which takes place on Saturday evening after the final performance. Winners will receive a (non-monetary) prize and lots of bragging rights.
