Seeking Shows for the 2023 Calendar Year

Deadline to Submit is November 1, 2021

Westfield Playhouse is seeking director submissions for the 2023 calendar year.  

Main Street Productions will be selecting five submissions to run from January 2023 through December of 2023.  We try to include shows across multiple genres including comedies, dramas, musicals, and original scripts.  All genres will be considered for their suitability to our audience demographics and our space.  Both new and experienced directors  are welcome.  All prospective applicants will need to submit a resume detailing their directorial experience.  In the case of new directors, a general theatrical resume, along with a letter of recommendation from an established director will be required.  We will no longer be soliciting a Youth Show as we transition that production into the hands of our Main Street Productions Youth Council.

Submissions are accepted from August 1, 2021 through November 1, 2021

Please submit one copy of each script you would like us to consider to the email address available on the document below.  For musical submissions please also include a copy of the cast recording.  Directors wishing to submit more than two scripts will need to include multiple submission documents with their scripts.  We will accept up to four submissions.  All submissions should be sent no later than November 1, 2021.   

Selection Process

Our Board appoints a selection committee who will read, review, and rank each submission.  The committee will make their decisions based on the balance of the season, the dates each director is available, and how the scripts fit with our audiences and vision for the season.  Shows being considered for the holiday time slot will need to be seasonally appropriate and family friendly.  Once the committee has selected shows, every director  will be notified.

Special Note

Westfield Playhouse does not provide a director their team.  Each director is responsible for securing their properties, costume, hair/make-up, sound designer and operator, light designer and operator, set designer and set builder.  MSP will handle the public relations, advertising and ticket sales.
