Willits Community Theatre Director’s Proposal, 2021 Season

Willits Community Theatre is pleased to offer an opportunity to those who would like to direct full-length plays of their own choice. Each interested director is asked to select and submit three plays that they are excited to direct. The Artistic Direction Committee (“ADC”) will review all proposals, and from among the collection of plays submitted, choose the five plays that will constitute Willits Community Theatre’s 2021 Main Stage season. The ADC will notify you on or before March 16th if one of your plays is selected.

To ensure that we create a season that includes a good mix of comedy, drama, etc., each interested director is asked to select plays from different genres. The ADC intends to present a season of plays to the board that includes both well-known, popular plays as well as at least one avant-garde play per season.

If you could use some help getting the creative juices flowing, we have a list of plays that we would like to see produced and would be happy to share that with you. WCT also has a library of scripts, and you are welcome to browse and borrow from our library. Please contact Steve Marston at 337-6090 or (smarston03@yahoo.com) for a copy of the list or to make arrangements to visit the library.

Thank you – we look forward to hearing from you! Sincerely,

The Artistic Direction Committee Willits Community Theatre
