Damascus Theatre Company
Call for Directors/Show Proposals

DTC is currently seeking submissions for the 2018-2019 season. Area directors are encouraged to submit proposals for musicals or plays that will appeal to a broad base of performers and audiences.  We are seeking musicals, comedies and dramas specifically geared toward smaller stage and venue size for the second half of our regular season, especially the Spring/Early Summer 2019 shows.

Deadline: December 1, 2017

Spring/Summer 2019 show will be at a smaller venue such as the Arts Barn or Olney’s Black Box theater. We plan to submit a smaller scale production to the Arts Barn Theatre for consideration in their June 2019 time slot, however acceptance is never guaranteed.
We will also consider Holiday themed show proposals for the late November or early December time slot.

Guidelines for Proposals

DTC requests that potential directors submit the following information in writing:

Show Overview including title, author, cast size, and age ranges of cast members, orchestra size (minimum to maximum), usual running length, list of songs, and brief synopsis.

Overall concept of the show – historical period, style, dialects, geographical location, interpretation
Set – special needs for staging, scene changes, set pieces

Choreography – level of dance required

Technical – sound, lights, special effects needed

Personnel – do you have anyone in mind for production crew such as music director, stage manager, choreographer, designers, etc.?
Other special considerations – scheduling conflicts, casting ideas, rehearsal requirements

Resume of previous directing, producing and/or acting experience, including background in music.

Email your submission in Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF format to the Executive Producer, Carol Boyle at: brandtandcarol@comcast.net by December 1, 2017.
