Town Players of Newtown is seeking play submissions from individuals interested in directing at The Little Theatre in 2014.
Potential directors are invited to submit up to three scripts for consideration by the theater’s play selection committee. Town Players puts on a variety of shows each season, from farce to period pieces to drama. The only type of show the theater cannot consider is a full-fledged musical due to space restrictions. Town Players is only looking to stage published works by established playwrights.
Submissions may be mailed to Town Players — Attn: Play Selection Committee, PO Box 211, Newtown CT 06470.
Submissions can also be scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with Play Submission in the subject line.
If you have not directed at Town Players in the past, please include a resume.
The submission deadline is October 19, 2013. Once all submissions are received, the committee will review them and let submitting directors know of their decisions by December 1.
Town Players would also like to hear from anyone interested in directing but who do not have a particular play in mind. Send resume, along with the time period available to direct, either via email or regular mail.
As a rule at Town Players, directors may not appear in their own productions.
Questions about this process in particular, or about directing at Town Players in general, may be submitted to email@example.com.
