THEATRE 29 ACCEPTING DIRECTOR’S SUBMISSIONS FOR 2016 SEASON

Admin Columns, Theatre

Theatre 29 is beginning the process of selecting plays, comedies, dramas and musicals for their 2016 season.

Area theatrical directors are being invited to submit suggested plays for consideration. The Theatre 29 Season Selection Committee strongly suggests Directors submit two titles to allow flexibility in forming a well-balanced season.  Directors can request a particular time slot or slots but are not guaranteed their requested time frame will be available.

The Theatre 29 play selection committee will review all requests and submit a recommended 2016 season line-up to the Board of Directors for review, the full Board will make the final determination.

Directors are reminded that Theatre 29 is dedicated to producing plays that are family-oriented and will attract a general audience. Directors submitting for the 2015 season must submit a script and an estimation of the shows budget, including, at least, estimated royalties and script costs.

Directors submitting for the first time to Theatre 29 are asked to include a directorial resume or biography of the candidate’s theatrical background. It is strongly suggested that first-time Directors include an Assistant Director who is well accustomed to the Theatre 29 Organization and culture. Directors will be required to adhere to the Theatre 29 Code of Conduct. The Play Selection Committee reserves the right to require and verify additional directorial qualifications on a case-by-case basis.

Theatre 29 is an all-volunteer Non-Profit Community theater that operates as an independent 501(c) 3 tax exempt organization. All Directors, Performers, backstage crew and theatre staff are unpaid volunteers. Musicals are allowed a stipend budget for musicians.

Theatre 29 will present six productions during the 2016 calendar year. Each play will run 12 performances over a 5 week run. Each play will have a Sunday Matinee the second and fourth week. Matinees will be on Saturdays or Sundays at the discretion of the director. The schedule allows for a minimum seven week rehearsal cycle.  All shows are produced at the Theatre 29 building at 73637 Sullivan Road in the City of Twentynine Palms.
