Dominion Stage has been bringing “anything but predictable” theatre to Arlington for 70 years. To celebrate our 2019-2020 season, we invite directors to submit plays and musicals of their choice for our consideration. We will choose director and play/musical as a pair.

Keep in mind Dominion Stage’s style and preference for unexpected, cutting edge dramas, comedies, and musicals.

Submissions are due to chair Brianna Goode at: by December 7.

In your submission(s) to Dominion, we request the following:
1) A resume detailing your directorial and other theatrical experience
2) An electronic copy of the show
3) A directing proposal which contains:
a summary of the show (paragraph), your concept/vision for the production (e.g. period, style, themes, etc.), concept for production elements (e.g. set, costumes, lighting, sound, or other special effects), a list of proposed designers.

It is essential you come with at least a producer and a set builder as those have been our biggest challenges in the past. Dominion Stage reserves the right to remove proposals from consideration that do not have these designers listed. If you do not believe you need a set builder (e.g. your show does not have a set), please explain in your proposal.

4) Two references who are familiar with your directing work

Note: Dominion Stage is a lean organization and cannot provide production staff. You are welcome to ask our board members to be a part of your production staff, but do not assume that our board will be able to fill these positions for you.

Dominion Stage will review applications on a rolling basis as soon as they are received. We will get back to all prospective directors as soon as possible to let you know where you stand in the process and if we would like to interview you. Final selections will be made by January 18th after which time we will communicate our selections for our 70th Season!
