Call for Submissions (Red Deer): Director for Bard on Bower Festival – Prime Stock Theatre

CALL FOR DIRECTORS (union & non-union):

Prime Stock Theatre is looking for submissions for our 2024 Bard on Bower Summer Shakespeare Festival. We are looking for a director who shares our values of; inclusivity, collaboration, innovation, ethics and quality and who works well in an ensemble. We’re especially interested in hearing from voices that have traditionally been underrepresented on Shakespeare’s stage.

This season, we are looking to program a comedy which will run in rep with Henry IV Part 2. We have a few in mind, but are open to suggestions. It is important that the play and director are a good fit for each other, so, if there is a Shakespeare play that you’d like to direct, we’d like to know about it.

Rehearsals are in Red Deer and begin May 20th with the festival slated to open July 19th.

How to submit:

  • Please send a brief description of the production you’d like to mount, and how the play speaks to you.
  • Please include a resume, and tell us about your relationship with Shakespeare.
  • Please send any questions you might have, along with submissions to Richard Beaune at artistic.director@primestocktheatre.com
  • The Submission deadline is Friday, January 19th.

Please note that Equity artists would be engaged under the Festival Policy and will be paid a share of profit.
