May 19 deadline for Lee Street Theatre would-be director’s call
Lee Street theatre invites would-be directors to submit a 30-40-minute play they would like to direct. Emerging playwrights will be accepted, but for this festival the play may be written by anyone, published or unpublished, comedy or drama, brand new or classic.
Don’t have a play but you’d like to direct? Don’t want to direct but you have a play? Still apply and we will try and make a marriage. Three plays will be chosen as part of Lee Street theatre’s regular 2014-2015 season for a two-week run September 18-20 and 25-27, 2014.LSt will organize auditions, facilitate rehearsals, and retain overall responsibility for production and marketing. Directors will be expected to take full control of actors, crew, rehearsals, set and props. The LSt managing artistic director reserves the right to monitor artistic integrity throughout the process.
Directors and actors are unpaid, but will more than likely become famous.
Submissions must arrive before May 19 by email at email@example.com subject line: ‘One-Act Festival’; or by mail to Lee Street theatre, ‘One Act Festival’, 329 N. Lee St., Salisbury NC 28144.
Include name, address, telephone, experience, email, and at least one complete script (no rough drafts) with playwright details. Synopsis is optional.
Note from the management: “Please be aware it is generally inadvisable to direct your own work. It omits key steps in the play-development process: objective feedback and collaboration. Having someone else direct your play may open your eyes to its weaknesses, strengths and alternative possibilities. Nevertheless, if you’ve successfully accomplished it, we’re easy to get along with; send us your Director’s re´sume´.”
