CenterStage Players is now accepting applications for Directors for our 2023-2024 season.
CenterStage Players (Ohio) aims to produce 2-3 shows next year. Our home venue, at Lockland High School, will be under reconstruction next year, but we have several possible venues in mind for the season. Accordingly, please bring us shows that could be done in a variety of venues. You can find a list of previous productions on our website – www.centerstageplayersinc.com.
We are searching for creative and talented directors, both experienced and new, who aren’t afraid to take a risk. We are open to comedy, drama, farce, and musical submissions and are particularly interested in rarely performed shows, original works, and “edgy” scripts.
Interested applicants should send the information shown below to Trisha Cooper, Vice-President of Production, before the deadline of November 5, 2022.
Director interviews will take place in December, 2022.
Please respond to this notice by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by snail mail to:
West Chester, OH 45241
