Director Applications Being Accepted for 2021-2022 Season at Mariemont Players

MPI_logo 2020Director Applications being accepted for Mariemont Players 2021-2022 Season

The Mariemont Players Artistic Committee is beginning work to select directors and plays for our 2021 –  2022 Season.  The season runs from September, 2021 thru July, 2022.

Mareimont Players hope to present theatre that make our audience think and feel 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.

Our season slots are September, November, January, March, May, and July. The committee is looking for comedies that can make an audience laugh, a drama that makes them cry, or best of all a show that can do both. It could be a mystery that keeps them guessing until the end or a musical that has them singing in their seats. It could be a favorite classic with a fresh production or an exciting new show.

In addition, we want to provide opportunities for local actors, designers, and technicians to continue to grow and develop as artists.

Deadline for applications is July 15, 2019.  Please contact Arny Stoller, Chair, Mariemont Players Artistic committee
