The Majestic Theatre is seeking directors to help us offer accessible theatre to meet the needs of our community during the pandemic through our popular Majesticpiece Theatre online streaming program!
No formal directing experience is necessary to apply. Many of the Majesticpiece Theatre productions that we have featured over the past few months have been directed by first-timers, and it's a perfect, low-pressure way to start your journey as a director.
Please note that we can only accept proposals for rights-free scripts, as we offer these online shows free of charge.
Our past Majesticpiece Theatre shows have tended to be classic comedies from Shakespeare, the Greeks, and Restoration-era theatre, with a few plays written by local playwrights thrown in for good measure. Classic scripts usually need to be cut down to a runtime of about two hours, with narration added to make a successful transition to the Zoom platform. If you’d like to see some examples of past shows, you can find a complete archive on our YouTube channel.
Winter proposals are for January, February, and March productions and are due on Friday, December 4th at 5pm.
Spring proposals are for April, May, and June productions and are due Friday, March 5th at 5pm.
