The John Anson Ford Amphitheatre is offering a leg up to Los Angeles County-based arts organizations who are interested in producing live performing arts events at the historic, open-air theatre in the Hollywood Hills in summer 2013.

“We know that producing in L.A. is expensive,” said Adam Davis, Ford Theatres Managing Director. “Groups who are accepted into the Ford’s Summer Partnership Program receive significant presentation support and assistance for their productions.”

Applications are now available to apply for the 2013 summer season. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, August 29, 2012.

Proposals are being accepted electronically through the Ford’s Web site. Before opening a proposal application, prospective applicants should first read the program’s guidelines which include instructions to apply and information on eligibility, the partnership program and other opportunities that exist for presenting at the Ford. Both the guidelines and application are available by clicking here.

Workshops about the Summer Partnership Program and how to submit a competitive proposal will be held on Tuesday, July 31 at 7:00 p.m. and Tuesday, August 14 at 7:00 p.m. at the Ford, 2580 Cahuenga Blvd. East, 90068, in the Hollywood Hills.

Parking for the workshop is free. Please RSVP with your name, organization, email address and phone number to fordtheatres@arts.lacounty.gov or call 323-856-5793.

The Ford is seeking proposals for a broad range of categories including, but not limited to, alt-rock, ballet, cabaret, circus, classical music, film, hip-hop, jazz, multimedia, modern dance, theatre, world and folk music, and world dance. Similar to a grant program, proposals for the Ford Amphitheatre Summer Season are considered on a competitive basis.

The Ford is a renovated historic 1,200-seat amphitheatre located in a Los Angeles County Regional Park and is operated by the Los Angeles County Arts Commission. Over 100 performing arts and film events are presented at the venue each summer.
