Call for Play Proposals for 2016-17 Season of Theatre
The Theatre Department will be initiating a new approach to the season of theatre in 2016/17. We want to give you, as students, more opportunities to develop your creative voices and work collaboratively. To achieve this, we’ll be making up to three production slots available for students to direct their own performance projects. Typically, these projects will be approximately one hour in length, and we will combine two projects to make a full evening of theatre. We’re also planning to present at least one full-length play directed by faculty as part of next year’s season. For details on how to propose a project, please read the attached proposal form carefully. If interested, start thinking now about what you would like to direct. Also, if you know you’d like to direct, but are unsure what to propose, please don’t hesitate to consult with theatre faculty. Time is short, with the March 1 deadline coming up fast. We will be designing the 2016/17 season based on the proposals received, so please get your proposals in soon.
