In late July, you will be contacted to schedule an interview with the Artistic Committee. Interviews will take place in mid-August.

Mariemont Players hopes to present theatre that makes our audience feel and think about what they see on our stage. We want our patrons to be entertained but, just as importantly, we want them to feel an emotional connection to the material.

The committee is looking to create an exciting and well-rounded season, with shows of all genres and a focus on fresh and inclusive perspectives and stories. We encourage directors from diverse backgrounds to apply as we actively seek to represent and promote the many insights, opinions and talents of our diverse artistic community.

We are always interested in productions that would provide opportunities for local actors, designers, and technicians to continue to grow and develop as artists, and show depth and range for our audiences.

Our season slots are September, November, January, March, May, and July.

Again, the deadline for applications is July 20, 2022. Please reach out to Jackie Miesle at with any questions.

Great fun for the whole family, Shrek is the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Outdoors. Bring seating.
