Want to get involved with Shakespeare Under the Stars?
Still looking for directors! Now accepting proposals on a rolling basis until 12/31! Hampshire Shakespeare Company is ramping up to celebrate their 30th season and wants to hear from you! We are accepting proposals for plays for our 2019 season of Shakespeare Under the Stars. In order to build community and encourage collaboration, we are changing up the process. We are specifically seeking proposals for the eight plays below and will select our season based on the proposals we receive.
The plays in consideration are:
- Henry V
- Love’s Labor’s Lost
- Measure for Measure
- Richard III
- The Taming of the Shrew
- Timon of Athens
- The Tempest
- The Winter’s Tale
The Director is the creator and enactor of the artistic vision of the production they direct and will be a collaborative center point for the success of the play. We want a director who is passionate about their work, so choose plays that really excite you! Interested in multiple plays? Feel free to submit proposals for up to three plays. Have a dream to direct something not on this list? Submit your proposal for it anyway! We will consider every proposal we receive.
What’s in a proposal? A proposal by any other name would smell as sweet. What we want is to hear your vision for the show and why this play speaks to you. Just a few paragraphs will do. Have some drawings? We’ll look at those, too!
While the priority deadline has passed, we are still accepting proposals on a rolling basis until 12/31. Send your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org. While we are a community theatre, we do offer a small stipend to most staff.
