Call for submissions: directors wanted for InspiraTO Festival

Alumnae Theatre's InspiraTO Festival has put out a call for submissions for directors interested in taking the reins with one of their 18 ten-minute plays that will be performed.

They have posted the pdf files for all 18 short plays on their website. They've included the synopses and the number of actors/actresses each will require. Of the eighteen plays, six are comedies, five are dramas and seven are absurd/fantasy scripts.

You may request up to four plays, but can only be selected for one. The deadline for submissions is February 15.

The 7th Annual InspiraTO Festival will take place from June 1-10, 2012 at the Alumnae Theatre, Mainstage.


18 directors wanted

Request to direct a ten-minute play (submit your request by Feb. 15)

Step 1.   Read a play (click on the play title).
Step 2.   Decide which play(s) you'd like to direct. You can request to direct up to four plays (if selected you will direct only one).
Step 3.  Email with your name and phone number. In the subject line write: Direct A Play. Answer these four questions for each play you wish to direct:

a)      What you found interesting about the play
b)      What your general approach would be in directing the play
c)      Your experience/training in directing/performing arts
d)      Your availability. (We will be holding auditions in March.

Rehearsals will be held in April/May. Tech runs are in late May/early June)

Please keep it concise: no more than two paragraphs for each play.

This is a non-paying, non-equity event.

If you wish to audition for a part (41 roles) we will post the audition schedule here in late February. Auditions will be in March; rehearsals in April/May; performances in early June.

The plays are posted for the purpose of selecting directors and actors. Click on the title of the play to read the script.  Any use of a play, either in whole or in part, must have the expressed permission of the playwright.
