Barn Swallow issues call for directorsPublished 10:29pm Monday, January 9, 2012
Barn Swallow Theatre is issuing an open call for directors for the 2012 season. Anyone interested in directing a play is encouraged to apply.
The first season presentation will be a dinner featuring one or two one-act plays in late April or May.
The next play is the second and third weeks of June on Friday and Saturday evenings with a Sunday matinee.
This may be modified to one week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with a Sunday matinee. A comedy or drama may be considered.
The third presentation, usually a children’s play, is the second week in July on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings and a matinee on Sunday.
The fourth presentation has traditionally been a musical presented the second and third weeks of August on Friday and Saturday evening with Sunday matinees. Again, this may be modified to one week on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with a Sunday matinee.
A Barn Swallow Jamboree will be presented in September for one Saturday night performance followed by a pie auction.
A director to coordinate this event is needed.
Additional plays, including a Christmas play, may also be considered.
Plays and dates may be interchangeable to accommodate commitments or conflicts with area or community events.
Additionally, the August play dates are in consideration of students who are returning to classes at that time of year.
Barn Swallow’s board will accept letters of interest sent to Barn Swallow Theatre, P.O. Box 296, Cassopolis MI 49031 by Feb. 1.
A resume with recommendations or referrals would be appreciated, along with suggestions for plays to consider.
