Call for directors to respond by May 1
DEARBORN – The Dearborn Area Theatre Association, a program of the Dearborn Recreation & Parks Department for the 2014-15 theater season, is in need of area directors for its “Random Acts of Theatre” production in August.
DATA also seeks candidates to fill technical theater positions.
Designed as a way to engage as many talented directors, actors and production staff as possible, “Random Acts of Theatre” will feature a variety of one-act plays and Reader’s Theatre in a two-hour time frame Aug. 15 and 16 at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Ave.
Directors who are interested should go to the DATA website at dearbornareatheatre.org to review production rules and download an application to submit to the production committee by May 1. Directors must have a script in mind before submitting an application. Directors will be interviewed by appointment in early May.
Technical Theater candidates should email letters of interest, along with a brief resume, to [email protected] by May 1. Production staff needs to be available from mid-July until the completion of the production in August.
Actors ages 18 and up are welcome to attend open auditions June 9 and 10. Role descriptions and available parts will be announced in late May and posted on the DATA website. All actors will be asked to fill out an audition form which will include a brief resume.
Actors and production staff must be available during the summer to rehearse and prepare for the performance.
DATA recently was made a part of the newly formed Summer Arts Academy, which is part of the Recreation & Parks Department.
