Call for Submissions: Directors for 2011-12 Season, Alumnae Theatre Company

Alumnae Theatre Company seeks non-union directors for the four mainstage  productions in our 2011-12 season:  Polly Teale’s “After Mrs. Rochester”, A.R.  Gurney’s “Sylvia”, Gwendolyn MacEwen’s translation of the Euripides classic “The  Trojan Women”, and “Cosi” by Louis Nowra.

Because three of the plays deal with madness in various forms, the tag line for  the season is “Lunacy.  Sheer, total lunacy.  (Oh, and a dog).”

Interested directors should check the Auditions page of www.alumnaetheatre.com for guidelines and submission instructions.  The deadline to submit a letter of  interest is May 13.
