We are inviting Expressions of Interest from
experienced directors for 2020/21 – our 61st season!

With the move to our New Space, Courtenay Little Theatre is looking for especially popular choices to help with our on-going fundraising campaign.

As usual a broad and balanced season can include dramas, comedies, musicals, mysteries, and of course a suitable production for family audiences over the Christmas holidays.

An Expression of Interest for directing should consist of

  • director’s full name, contact information
  • complete account of Director’s directing experience
  • copy of the script
  • casting and set requirements, and
  • importantly – reasons for choosing the play.

Deadline for submissions: Expressions of Interest for the 2020/2021 season should be submitted to Adele Bailey of the CLT Selection Committee at by 1 SEPTEMBER 2019. Directors will be contacted by the Selection Committee to discuss further steps in the process.

NB: Directors may submit more than one script and/or Expression of Interest.

There is further guidance for writing Expressions of Interest on our website: Choosing our Plays: Guidelines for The Selection Committee.
