Directors Sought for 2023-24 Season at Loveland Stage Company

LSC_logoWe at the Loveland Stage Company are excited to see all the hopeful submissions for this upcoming 23/24 season.

See guidelines below:

Play Submittal Guidelines
The Loveland Stage Company welcomes the submission of plays for performance consideration.  Please follow the procedure outlined below (Rev. Sept 2022).

Loveland Stage Company Guidelines for Selecting Directors:
These guidelines are intended as suggestions for directors who wish to direct at the Loveland Stage Company. A standard season consists of a Children’s Workshop show in the summer and 3 all ages shows over the remainder of the year.  We may consider other factors that the board deems necessary in determining the choice of either directors or shows for the coming season.

  1. Potential directors should have directed / assistant directed shows in the past.
    1. If you have never directed you must be open to utilizing an experienced LSC director to assist.
  2. Potential directors must be open to using experienced LSC Producers, Lighting and Sound in a minimal of an assistant role.

Loveland Stage Company Play Submittals

Step One:
Show Summary: 
The director will submit in writing, a short (50 words or less), summary of the action of the play or musical.

Theatrical Experience: The director will include a description of their background in theater, explaining their unique qualifications for directing their show.

Proposal: The director will submit a proposal for review.  Possible revisions to the proposal may occur after the board has reviewed.

An example of a proposal:

  1. List all characters in the show with a brief description of their age and type.
  2. What is your overall concept/vision of the play?
  3. Describe the set and costumes.
  4. Will you need production assistants, assistant director, assistant / music director, vocal coach, etc.?
  5. A proposed budget for the production.
  6. Are there any exception costs associated with this production? (orchestra or musicians, etc.)
  7. How much rehearsal time will you need for this play?
  8. Do you have scheduling concerns regarding your availability?
  9. Do you have a covid contingency plan; either to prevent the cast from getting sick or allowing the full proposed run to still happen if illness occurs?

Proposals for the coming season* must be submitted / postmarked by October 31 to be assured consideration for the season. The season is June 1, 2023 through the following May 31, 2024

Step Two:
If necessary, the board may also request additional information from the director.  Once revisions are made to the plan the board makes a final determination regarding the play/musical. At the discretion of the board, exceptions may be made to this procedure.

We at the Loveland Stage Company are excited to see all the hopeful submissions for this upcoming season.

Thank you for submitting,

Joshua Marcus
VP & LSC Playreading Committee Chair

Auditions Announced for COMPANY at Loveland Stage Company

LSC_logoLoveland Stage Company is excited to announce auditions for COMPANY by the late Stephen Sondheim on November 7th & 8th.

On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor, Robert, contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, his friends – “those good and crazy people [his] married friends” – explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious array of interactions. The audience will enjoy seeing an intimate reflection of themselves and their own friends.

Directed by John Sloan
Co-Produced by Jill Gornet & Tom Cavano
