Are you or someone you know interested in directing a production in Buck Creek Players’ 47th season in 2020-2021? Now is your chance!
As a Director, how do I submit?
To be considered, please provide the following information in your submission:
Program Selection Submission Form in either .pdf or Excel format. On the form, please include information on the proposed production, other important details, whether it is a youth production, and rank our six production time slots in order of preference. Please note that all production slots may be chosen at this time. A separate call for submissions is not guaranteed at a later date.
Please submit two (2) copies of each script (play and/or musical). Please be sure to also submit a copy of a cast recording (CD or .mp3 audio files) in addition to each script for all musical submissions. Since the musical score is such an integral part of a stage musical, no musical submissions can be considered without a recording accompanying it.
A theatrical resume outlining past directing experience and theatrical background.
A director may propose any play or musical they would like to direct; however, please keep in mind the facility and stage, as well as the marketability of your submission.
All submissions must be received or postmarked no later than Saturday, September 14, 2019. Submissions may be mailed via U.S. Mail, dropped off, or e-mailed.
If you choose to mail your submissions, please send to:
Buck Creek Players
Attn: Program Selection
11150 Southeastern Avenue
Indianapolis, IN 46259
If mailing your submission, please send by way of the United States Postal Service ONLY. They are an all-volunteer community theater and unfortunately do not have staff available during the day to sign for UPS or Fed Ex deliveries. You may also save postage by dropping off submissions directly to the playhouse or by e-mailing your submission(s).
What happens after I submit?
All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Selection Committee in the coming months, and the proposed season will be chosen and approved by the Buck Creek Players Board of Directors and General Membership. All potential directors will be notified whether or not their pieces were selected for the 2020-2021 season.
Does BCP repeat shows they’ve produced in the past?
Over their 45+ years of existence, very few productions have been repeated, with new pieces highly encouraged. BCP will fully consider pieces they have previously produced; however, if all other factors are equal, preference will be given to the piece they have not produced. For a list of past productions, please view their Past Seasons.
What production dates/slots are available?
BCP is requesting submissions for all six production times with this call for submissions. Youth submissions are encouraged for any of the time slots and should be noted as such on the submission form. Additionally, any fundraisers or non-traditional productions are strongly encouraged to submit a form at this time. Based on submissions, all available production slots may be chosen at this time. A separate call for submissions is not guaranteed at a later date.
What if I have questions?
Please feel free to drop your questions at email@example.com and they will do their best to answer your questions as quickly as they can!
They hope to see a diverse group of submissions this year by a variety of potential directors. This is a fun and exciting process, and I hope you will play a part.
