Call for Submissions (Edmonton): 2013-2014 Season Submissions – Walterdale Theatre

Walterdale Theatre Associates
2013-2014 Season Submissions

Walterdale PlayhouseEvery year the call goes out for submissions for the upcoming season. If you are interested in directing a show at Walterdale, please submit at this time. These scripts and additional information will be held in care for the incoming Artistic Director to use to help build their season. All selected Directors will need to be members by the time their audition notice is released. For information on membership, please refer to our website.

What if you haven’t directed much or at all before?
If you are new to directing, please contact Sarah Van Tassel, current Artistic Director, at [email protected] to find out how to become an Assistant Director, or direct a One-Act in our From Cradle to Stage One-Act Festival. Please bear in mind that many people do want to direct at Walterdale and experience is a factor in selection.

What kinds of plays are we looking for?
We are looking for a variety of plays: dramas, comedies, thrillers, classic works, musicals, pantomimes, small cast, large cast, medium cast, period, modern, Canadian, etc… The season has 5 shows plus the one-acts and these shows must meet a variety of needs. We serve a varied audience and a varied membership, so we like to offer up different shows to meet those needs. Feel free to push boundaries and choose edgier works, or pick plays that you connect to. You can submit more than one script. I recommend submitting different kinds of works (varied cast sizes and themes) so that you give the Artistic Director a variety to choose from. Always submit well-written scripts as it is often the writing that rules a script out.

Please submit the following materials:

• A copy of the script (if you submit the original script, it will be returned to you – photocopies will not be).
• A copy of your theatre résumé, highlighting your directorial experience both with Walterdale and in other theatrical settings.
• A Directorial Proposal – including the following:

o Why you think this would be a good show for Walterdale to produce
o Your directorial concept for the show
o Casting requirements
o What Production Team you would bring with you into the project
o ANY information that might affect budget (e.g. Chorus size for a musical or size of ensemble in a straight play, desire for period dress, rental of special equipment).

Scripts and accompanying materials may be dropped off or mailed to:
