Directors Sought for 2020 Season at Encore Youth Theater


On behalf of the Encore Youth Theater Board, we are pleased to announce that we are currently accepting Director Submissions for the 2020 Season. This upcoming year is very exciting for Encore as we are celebrating 25 Years of giving students in Butler County the ability to learn, grow and succeed both on and off stage. We are proud of our history, and looking forward to the bright future as we continue to develop our program and its offerings. We are also very excited to announce that this upcoming season, Encore Youth Theater will be offered to students in Grades 7-12 in ALL Counties. We hope this expansion of our program will bring the ability to learn and perform to many more students in the Greater Cincinnati area!

Directing for Encore is a unique opportunity. We take great pride in what we teach our performers in ways of on stage performance, back stage behavior and preparation. Throughout the rehearsal process, we set up Audition Workshops, Guest Speakers, Alumni visits and more. As a Director, you will be guided and encouraged by the Encore Youth Theater Board in these aspects.

Our shows stand out from other Youth programs. We do it, and we do it well! Our rich history leaves us setting the bar higher and higher every year, and it is extremely important to us to work with a Director with the same quality standards. Directors should be prepared to work with a cast of 50+. The students also double as set movers and tech. Historically, a live orchestra has been utilized. Rehearsal time is typically Late May- Mid July, Monday through Thursday evenings. This is a paid position.

Submissions to Direct should come from well seasoned and experienced Directors. These submissions should include ( but are not limited to) the following:

  • Show Title
  • Production Team ( Choreographer, Music Director, Asst. Director, ect.. If Applicable)
  • Detailed Vision Summary for Show
  • Detailed Vision for Costumes for Show
  • List of Technicals Needs/Set Ideas
  • Calendar of Personal Conflict with Rehearsals

Submissions can be sent via email to mcleanstrickland@gmail.com, or by USPS to :
Encore Youth Theater ℅ Diane Noonan 16 Danielle Ct. Hamilton, OH 45013

We are so happy to bring more opportunity in Theater to students this year, and hope that you will join us as we embark on another 25 years of Encore!
