CALL FOR DIRECTORS SALINE AREA PLAYERS 2018-2019 SEASON


1) Saline Area Players is preparing to choose productions for the 2018-19 season and is accepting proposals from potential directors. The production could possibly be at Liberty School which offers a small but traditional stage that is ideal for one set with no ability to fly pieces. Seating is about 200. The scene shop is off site. Another option is The 5th Corner which can seat 120 and has a very small stage ideal for minimal set pieces/staging and very small cast. Each production would run for one weekend: Thursday/Friday thru Saturday/Sunday. Looking for a Spring show but would also interested in a small Fall/Summer show. SAP is open to established or original works, straight or small musical. NOTE: Often more women than men typically audition. We welcome scripts that can include young actors as well. Directors receive a small stipend. All directors interested in proposing a show should complete an application which includes a summary of the production, information about rights (if possible access to script), vision of director, and resume.

2) SAP is also looking for a director for the Rentschler Farm Days Show: Sunday Oct 7th in the Rentschler Farm barn. This does not have a stipend and is a show we do for free in conjunction with Farm Days. Show length should be 20-30 minutes and be in the free domain with a very small cast with some kids and possibly some adults. Rehearsals kept to about 4, a dress rehearsal on Saturday, and performances on Sunday at 1pm and 3pm. The theme appropriate for 1800's-1900's. Looking for a script/show that should be ideal for the novice actor with little to no theater experience. Everyone responsible for their own costume and the set is the barn so minimal pieces added. Expect about 30-40 at a performance. [We do have some potential material that could be used if interested in directing but do not have a script idea.] All directors interested in proposing a show should complete an application which includes a summary of the production, information about rights (if possible access to script), vision of director, and resume.


More than one idea may be submitted. All applications should be completed by April 27th.
