Direct at the
Wilmington Drama League
Calling all Directors
You may apply to direct at Wilmington Drama League at any time throughout the year, by requesting a submission form at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The WDL will determine the final deadlines for submission each year, generally in the December/January time frame. Submission will go through an internal review process and interviews will be scheduled with selected candidates. Subsequently, short-list candidates are then forwarded to the Board for a final vote.
Early submission gives directors a better opportunity to choose their preferred time slot.
Black Box Submissions
Black Box submissions should follow these general guidelines:
Minimal/Representational sets that maximize creativity
Inexpensive royalties (generally meaning non-musicals) or public domain
Edgy, less well-known plays and unique new takes on classic theatre are particularly encouraged
Still not sure? Ask us! email@example.com.
Submissions having youth-oriented themes and/or a large youth cast will be forwarded to the Chrysalis Players for evaluation.
Persons interested in directing for the Ruby Stanley One-Act Festival should contact the WDL production manager at Kathy@wdleague.org. Submissions are ultimately reviewed by the Ruby Stanley Festival Committee for acceptance.
