Winters Theatre Company 2025 Season 


Attention Directors! Winters Theatre Company is now seeking applications from directors interested in directing a production for our upcoming 2025 season. We are excited to hear your proposal for any type of production (drama, musical, comedy, etc.). Give us your pitch! The 2025 season will be selected from director submissions.

___________________________

2025 Season Selection Process

 

Applications: May 1 to June 30, 2024
 

Anybody interested in directing a show with the Winters Theatre Company (WTC) must submit an application using the online Director Application form. The application asks for information regarding the production being proposed and about you as a director, including your schedule. If you have questions or problems with the online form, please email wtcplays@gmail.com.


We strongly encourage submissions as early as possible during the application window, in order to give us adequate time to review your proposal.

Reviews and Interviews: July / August / September 2024

After review of submissions, the Play Selection Committee will schedule interviews with those applying 
directors whose proposal is selected as a potential candiate for the 2025 season.


Interviews will take place in July and August 2024. Most interviews will be in-person, at the Winters Opera House theatre. If an in-person interview is not feasible for some reason, then an interview via Zoom may be arranged.
 

All directors can expect a reply to their application by September 2024.

The Play Selection Committee will then take all applications and interviews into account and recommend a 2025 Season calendar for submission to the WTC board by November 2024.


Submission Considerations and Guidelines:

  • The Winters Opera House stage (home of WTC) Is approximately 22′ x 16′. The back /offstage area is limited. Complex and large sets are difficult in our space. If you submit a show with a large or complex set, please be prepared to share your vision for making it work in our space and within our budget.

  • The online application will ask you to indicate when you are available to direct. Productions typically run for 2 or 3 consecutive weekends. Rehearsals are usually scheduled for 2-3 days per week for 4 fo 6 weeks prior to the show. 

  • The online application asks directors to submit an estimated budget for the production being proposed. This is a preliminary budget, and allows you (and us) to begin thinking in more specific detail about the production requirements.

  • During your in-person interview, we will discuss your design / production requirements.  While WTC has dedicated volunteers that help provide technical and design support for our productions, we encourage potential directors to consider recruiting technical resources that have not worked with our company before. We are always looking to welcome new talent and perspective to our company.

  • Please be aware that contractual agreements with publishing companies forbid changes to published scripts. Do not submit scripts that you have personally edited or changed.

  • Directors should familiarize themselves with which company or entity holds production rights for the submitted work. This information is required in the application and may require some advance preparation.

  • Directors with WTC are volunteers. Being selected to direct with the Winters Theatre Company should not be considered as  an offer of employment.

    If you would like to chat more about a production you may be considering applying to direct, please email wtcplays@gmail.com and we will put you in touch with the right person.
