It's time for submissions for next season
2012 Season: It is time to start determining next season's shows so we're calling on potential directors to submit their proposals.
Please consider directing.
The deadline to submit a proposal is September 26, 2011.
You can turn in proposals to myself or Sandy Goad. Proposals forms can be found at our Website, www.communityplayersofhobbs.com.
Please use the form and give two play options (as opposed to just one). The better your written proposal and plan — is the easier it is for others to understand why you want to do certain shows, etc.
Several people will be reading the submissions and then recommendations will be given to the board for final approval for a slate of shows.
Decisions on the season's shows are loosely based on some of the following:
1) Audience appeal. Meeting audience desires and expectations. (comedies are always more popular than serious dramas, etc.)
2) Artistic appeal and merit
3) Appropriate availability of talent and skill level for the production.
4) Feasibility of production
5) Balance and scheduling of a variety season to meet all the above.
As always, these are only a few criteria but not the only criteria and the board reserves the right to adjust accordingly. Setting a season is a judgement that many people have a voice in and requires sometimes difficult choices and tradeoffs. I appreciate everyone's understanding in advance.
Experienced directors picked to direct a show may be requested to mentor a rookie assistant director who is seeking to one day take on the directing position.
Those of you have never directed before are welcome to submit ideas and proposals. Criteria like prior theater experience, mentoring under an experienced director and/or high school/college level theater training will be taken into considerations as prerequisites to being the lead director of a show.
We also had a request with possibly funding to team up with Sheri's Memorial Fund to put on a play about domestic violence in February. If interested, let me know. We will also be having in our schedule a show funded/partially funded with the N.M. centennial celebrations.
Anyone is welcome to simply suggest a show they would like to see done at the Playhouse, even if they are not going to direct it.
