JOSHUA TREE, CA – Calling All Directors!  The Hi-Desert Cultural Center’s prestigious Hi-Desert Playhouse theater division is seeking experienced directors to join its artistic team for the 2015-2016 season.  The Playhouse is looking for submissions from theater directors that convey artistic passion, a connection with the material, and a vision for an exciting production.

The Hi-Desert Playhouse’s new season will feature both professional-quality as well as community-involved productions, an entirely new “First Fridays! Reader’s Theater Series” featuring published and original works, and a full-scale Summer Youth Theater production.  With two major stage productions having already been selected, the Playhouse is looking for directors to submit show ideas to be considered for its new season line-up.  From Shakespeare to Simon, Chekhov to Durang, Gershwin to Sondheim, and everything in between — all ideas are welcome!  As the most-awarded theater in the region this most recent season and with the Playhouse’s new theatrical artistic director Howard Shangraw, be a part of the Hi-Desert Cultural Center’s exciting future.

To submit, please send an email to info@hidesertculturalcenter.org that includes the following information: 1) your name and contact information, 2) the title and playwright/composer of the work you are submitting, 3) in your own words, what this particular work is about and why you are passionate about it, 4) your availability for the 2015-2016 season, 5) your previous directing experience, and 6) whether you would consider this a semi-professional or Equity level production.

The Hi-Desert Cultural Center looks forward to reviewing your submission.  For more information, call the Box Office at 760.366.3777 Ext. 2 or send an email to info@hidesertculturalcenter.org
