2018 Show Proposals Now Open

Calling All Directors! Have you ever wanted to direct your own play? Have you ever wanted to take the next step in your theatrical career? Are you thinking of a show, play, or musical that you would like to see performed where you get to take the helm as its leader? Now is the time to take action. STAGE Cast Club is currently looking for directors for our 2018 season! What does that mean for you? We have already chosen some candidates for drama, comedy, and musical that we would like to see in our season lineup for 2018, and for those shows, we are looking for proposals for directors and production team members. Additionally, we are looking for additional productions to fill out our 25th season

To fill these slots, we are calling all directors to bid for the aforementioned shows for this season. If you think you have an additional project that will fit perfectly into our season, please submit a show proposal form for a Wild Card proposal.
