Directing at ACT
How directors are chosen
ACT chooses its directors each season from a pool of candidates who meet our qualifications and who submit scripts for our consideration. Qualification is determined by the board of directors, and plays are read by a committee of ACT members appointed by the president; once they come up with a proposed season calendar, it is submitted to our paid membership for ratification at the April membership meeting.
Like all others at ACT, directors are unpaid.
If you are interested in directing at ACT, the first step is to get involved with the theater, on stage or off. Get to know current directors and volunteer to work with them (you must serve as a stage manager or assistant director here before you will be considered to direct a play; there are no exceptions).
Call for directors, 2017-2018
December 28, 2016
Albany Civic Theater is soliciting director submissions for our 67th season. The new season will open in September of 2017 and run through August 2018.
Please read this packet thoroughly, even if you have directed for us before. There may be some changes of which you may not be aware; this a “must read” for every director. If you are interested in applying to direct, we urge you to:
All scripts and accompanying forms must be received at the theater by 5:59 p.m. on Sunday, January 29, 2017.
At the February 6th board meeting, the board will review all directors and determine at that time those not qualified for the season. Individuals will be contacted within that week with the reason(s) and given tools to assist them to meet qualifications for the following season.
Our schedule calls for a recommended season to be presented to ACT members for final approval on Sunday, April 2nd, 2017.
If, after reading this packet, you have questions about the process or about plays contact me by e-mail email@example.com
