Are YOU Interested in Directing a Show with Morpheus?
We also welcome directors without a show, and show ideas without a director!
Morpheus Theatre invites directors to make proposals for shows to be produced during our 2014/2015 season. We encourage experienced and passionate directors to submit a letter of interest along with a resume with related theatre experience and background.
Morpheus produces 4 quality shows each year (a farce or comedy, a Christmas family production, a contemporary drama, and a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta) at the Pumphouse Theatre, in both the Victor Mitchell & Joyce Doolittle Theatres. We are looking for WELL-KNOWN SHOWS with HIGH AUDIENCE POTENTIAL that fall within our four show categories.
Ideally, the shows will appeal to a wide family audience (primarily 12 and up, although under 18 is not the target audience).
Proposals should include the following information:
* Name of director
* Directing and theatre related experience
* Title & Playwright of show
* Cast size of show, with male/female breakdown
* Why you think Morpheus should produce it
* Director’s Vision for the show (including overall thoughts about how it would be
staged & any special effects, set ideas, costume ideas, technical considerations)
* Which theatre it would work best in
* Potential challenges
* Any other comments or considerations
At this time, we ask that you don’t try to recruit production crew or check on the production rights.
Please email or deliver letters of interest by January 31, 2014 to:
