Direct For Us! 

We're seeking directors for our 2021-2022 Season!

Deadline Extended - Show List Updated - See Below

Like all of you, we cannot say with any certainty what the world—or live theater—will be like one year from now. But in the same hopeful spirit with which we launched our play selection process in the spring of 2020, the Vokes Play Committee is excited to share its short list of plays and musicals being considered for our 2021-2022 season, curated with many possible scenarios in mind.

 

You’ll find the list of plays under consideration below. If you're interested in directing one (or more) of these shows at Vokes next season, please download, complete, and submit our Director Proposal Form.

 

Proposal and Selection Process

All directors must complete the Director Proposal Form by EXTENDED Monday, November 30, 2020, 11:59 p.m. EDT. (Note: separate forms must be submitted for each play you are interested in.) Materials may be submitted via email to Deanna Swan (deannaswan@yahoo.com) and/or Jessica Tomer (jessica.tomer@gmail.com).

Vokes Play Committee will review all submissions and invite selected directors to present and interview virtually. Interviews will be held early to mid-December. All interviews will be held via Zoom.

All directors will be notified of the Vokes Play Committee’s decision by mid-January 2021. The approved season will be publicly announced shortly thereafter via the Vokes Players website, Facebook, electronic newsletter, and Vokes Players January membership meeting.

If you are interested in directing such a production, please email Play Committee members Deanna Swan (dswan@southgateatshrewsbury.com) and/or Jessica Tomer (jessica.tomer@gmail.com) to discuss.
