Denton, TX – Oct 1st, 2015

The MTD Production Board is now accepting submissions from all individuals interested in Directing our 2016 “Dream” Season which includes Into the Woods (March ‘16), In the Heights (May ‘16)  and Shrek the Musical (Oct ‘16).

As an all-volunteer organization, MTD depends on the talent and support of our Directors, Designers, and Staff to make each season a success. Our goal is to match each show with its perfect Director and Staff.

All prospective Directors are asked to submit a brief production packet to the Production Board for consideration. This packet should focus on the Director’s passion for the selected property and artistic vision for the production.

While there is no specific requirement as to the number of items needed for submission, Director packets that demonstrate a full scope of the production stand a better chance to impress the individual members of the Production Board. A sample list of items previously used in similar Director searches include:

  • production resume of recent projects
  • photos of recent projects and designs
  • artistic concept for the show
  • envisioned set design sketch
  • names and contacts for designers to be included in the production staff
  • professional references from previous projects and theatre companies
  • estimated production budget (set, costume, orchestra, prop, sound design, etc)

Packets will be judged based on their ability to clearly demonstrate the Director’s strengths and how they relate to a successful run of their chosen property. If any Director would like to be considered for more than one property, they are asked to submit a separate packet for each title they are interested in Directing.

Please submit the completed Director’s Packet to MTD via email [ProductionBoard@MusicTheatreofDenton.com] no later than Friday October 9th, 2015.  Due to time constraints to complete this process, no packets can be accepted after this deadline. All Director’s Packets will be reviewed by the Production Board members in time to present the final candidates to the Governing Board in October.

Please include both an email and daytime phone number should members of the Governing or Production Board wish to speak with you further.

Thank you for your interest in Music Theatre of Denton.
