Call for Submissions (Calgary): Applications for the RBC Emerging Director Program (2013/2014) – Lunchbox Theatre

13-09Lunchbox Theatre’s RBC Emerging Director Program is an extraordinary program, supported by the RBC Foundation, which affords a special opportunity for Calgary theatre artists. It invites theatre practitioners who are either in the initial stages of their professional careers, or looking to shift the focus of their professional career, to advance their directorial talents and artistic skills through a combination of mentorship and hands-on experience.
The Emerging Director will act as Assistant Director on four of Lunchbox Theatre’s 2013/2014 productions, working with various professional theatre directors, and will then direct a full showcase production at the conclusion of the season. The script for this production will be chosen jointly by the Emerging Director and Lunchbox Theatre’s Artistic Director. There will be a minimum of four public performances at the end of May to early June, 2013, including an invited-only ‘industry night’ Gala, designed to showcase the Emerging Director’s work to other industry professionals.
