Seeking theatre directors for short play festival
The festival will feature seven short plays written by playwrights from around the country. A summary of the scripts is available on the 2022 Make/Believe page.
In particular we are seeking Filipino-American, Black female directors and non-binary directors, but encourage all BIPOC and LBGTQIA+ directors to apply. We welcome early career directors or actors interested in branching into directing and will provide a company mentor to help you through the process.
Rehearsals will be scheduled around cast and director availability. In order to keep the number of people involved to a minimum, a pool of actors will be used for all seven pieces.
A technical rehearsal is scheduled for July 12 from 6 to 9 p.m. (Pieces will be scheduled so directors will not be required to attend the entire tech.) Tech and performance will take place outside at the NorthCenter Town Square.
Directors will receive a $50 stipend.
Interested directors should submit a resume and a statement of interest with any additional relevant experience to Maria Burnham at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use the following format in the email’s subject line: Nightlight Festival - [director’s name]
The deadline for submissions is April 18.
