The Alumnae Theatre Company puts out open calls for directors for each show or festival in its season. Application times vary each year. Keep checking back for notices. Members get advance notice and preference where possible.

Pitch-A-Play Submissions

Is there a play you want to direct or produce on our mainstage? ATC Mainstage Programming Committee for 2018-2019 Season is looking for submissions from Members and Member Teams. Can you get together with another member or members and form a Director/Producer Team with a play you are passionate about?
 
The play should meet our overall mandate: “The Alumnae Theatre Company is dedicated to the production of adventurous, high-quality theatre not readily seen elsewhere, and to the promotion and skill development of women in theatre. We would love to see large or medium to large casts; and plays or playwrights with public recognition to bring in audiences to our shows.
 
So if you are interested in suggesting a play and/or pitching a play with yourself as Director or Producer or, best of all, bring a member Director and Producer team, we want to hear from you!
 
Expressions of interest should be sent to Barbara Larose at barbaralarose2@gmail.com by October 31, 2017. Pitches and interviews will be held in mid-November. Interested in pitching but not sure how?  Contact Barbara Larose at the above email to book a one-on-one How to Pitch Session prior to your interview. 

Seeking Directors for Next Stage Reading Series

The New Play Development Group (NPD) of the Alumnae Theatre seek directors for Season Two of the NEXT STAGE READING SERIES. The Next Stage Reading Series aids in the development of works-in-progress with "semi-cold" lobby readings of new scripts. All members and non-members welcome to attend! All ACTIVE members welcome to participate as directors!
 
Readings will be hosted in the Alumnae Lobby on:
September 18, October 2, November 6, December 11, 2017
January 8, February 5, April 2, June 18, 2018

Did you apply last year? You're still on the list!
Want to be on the list? Contact BOTH Anne Tait anne@annetaitproductions.com and Carol Libman libmancarol@rogers.com, and be ready to supply your resume.

As this is an Alumnae initiative for playwrights, actors and directors, all roles - regardless of gender - are played by women.  
Actors and directors are chosen from Alumnae members, and therefore male roles are read by females.

PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST BE AN ACTIVE, LIFE OR SENIOR SUPPORTING MEMBER OF ALUMNAE, AS WELL AS A MEMBER OF THE NEW PLAY DEVELOPMENT GROUP TO PARTICIPATE AS A DIRECTOR.
