FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Four County Players now accepting submissions for its 46th Season
Barboursville, VA – October 2, 2017
Four County Players is now accepting submissions for Season 46, our 2018 – 2019 theatrical season. We are looking for passionate, creative, talented, collaborative directors with proposals of the shows they would like to direct.
Our MAINSTAGE — 200-seat classic proscenium theater — will feature well-known, (mostly) family-friendly musicals and comedies. Our CELLAR — 60-seat black box theater — will feature a mixed bag of darker, edgier plays; more “grown-up” works (i.e. not necessarily family-friendly); Shakespeare; new and original plays; original musical revues; etc.
Proposals should include: Director’s resume with contact information, titles & pertinent information about shows they are interested in directing (the more detailed, the better!), and time(s) of year they are interested and/or available to direct.
Please send your written proposals to Programming Committee Chairman, Gary Warwick White, via email, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions must be received no later than the firm deadline of Monday, October 30, 2017 in order to be considered. You will be notified no later than January 2018 whether or not we are interested in moving forward with your proposal for the 2018 – 2019 season.
Note: While we are always interested in hearing what our audiences and volunteers would like to see onstage (information which we gather from our annual audience survey), this submission request is specifically for directors to propose productions for the season. We are also always interested in playwrights submitting their original works, and they are always welcome to do so, but show(s) with directors attached will always be given first consideration.
Four County Players is Central Virginia’s Longest-Running Community Theater, and prides itself on being a cultural destination for Charlottesville and the surrounding areas. For more information, please call the theater at 540-832-5355, or visit www.fourcp.org.
