Mesa Encore Theatre seeks director submissions for their 2017 / 2018 Black Box Season
Mesa Encore Theatre is ready to begin programming the 2017 – 2018 Black Box Season.
If you are an experienced and motivated Director please use the form below to submit one or more shows that YOU would like to direct. This is an excellent chance for you to propose a show you have always wanted to direct! All submissions will be considered, with preference given to dramas, dark comedies, newer plays, and edgy works that don’t play well in larger theatres. NO ORIGINAL WORKS – we are looking for works by recognized playwrights only. Directors must be experienced with verifiable past productions and have a clear vision for their show. Musicals and variety shows with inexpensive rights fees will be considered this year but please keep in mind when submitting that the M.E.T. Black Box is a small and intimate space that cannot accommodate major or complex set changes and numerous props. Any show you submit must have a cast size of 6 or less.
Each production will include approximately 5 weeks of rehearsal in our secondary rehearsal space, a full tech week on the stage, and at least 9 performances that will span three weekends: Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday afternoon, with the potential for a Thursday evening and/or Saturday matinee. The shows will be produced with set, props, lighting, sound, and costumes, in our 55-seat Black Box Theatre with full technical support. The “Slot(s)” field on the form below is for the three weekends the show would run. You may select more than one slot. The available show slots are:
8/4/2017 to 8/20/2017
10/6/2017 to 10/22/2017
2/2/2018 to 2/18/2018
4/6/2018 to 4/22/2018
6/8/2018 to 6/24/2018
