WHO DIRECTS AT PPCT?
First and foremost, we want to work with folks who are truly excited about their vision for a show and are committed to using the intricacies and quirks of a community-based theatre to bring that vision to life.
Because every community works just a little bit differently, PPCT requires that all potential directors have previous experience either directing or stage managing a production for PPCT.
To support our directors in fulfilling their creative vision within our theatrical community, we offer two key resources:
- A production liaison from the Production Planning and Education Committee to serve as a consulting member of the production staff
- A comprehensive Production Book that documents all policies and procedures as well as defines roles and responsibilities for all members of the production team.
CHOOSING A PLAY
If you want some help choosing a play, take a look at our index of past productions to see what we've done before. We also have a collection of shows on our wish list that patrons and others have recommended. You can also reach out to [email protected] if you would like to take a look at our extensive play archive.
Please fill out the proposal form if you are interested and qualified to direct a production at our theatre. We request that anyone interested in directing complete the form even if they submitted one a few years ago.
