Director Proposal: Summer 2019
Are you a Chicago-area director with a passion project you've been dying to work on? Is there a play you'd love to bring to Chicago's storefront theatre community? Please read through our website, especially our company page, to see whether you'd be a good fit with our team.
Proposals will be accepted until January 4, 2019
What kind of show are you looking for?
In general, we are looking for a straight play with a small cast, with simple technical needs that features characters in their 20s and 30s.
Can I propose a musical or a play with music?
For this time slot, we do not want a musical. If there is a musical element, it should be small enough that it does not require a musical director or much rehearsal.
What do you consider a small cast?
A cast of 2–10 actors.
Do all of the characters need to be in their 20s or 30s?
No; however, we strongly encourage a majority of characters to be in that age range.
What are "simple" technical needs?
Minimal set, costumes, props, etc. Do you have a creative way to make a complex show clear and simple? We'd love to hear about it in your proposal.
What if I have more than one play to propose?
Great! Please fill out one form for each show idea.
What's the timeline?
We will be accepting proposals until January 4, 2019. You will then receive an email you informing you whether or not we'd like to move forward with your proposal for a second review. We will interview the finalists before making a final decision.
The actual production will take place sometime between June-August 2019.
