STAGE 2019 Director Proposals
Calling All Directors! Have you ever wanted to direct your own play? Have you ever wanted to take the next step in your theatrical career? Are you thinking of a show, play, or musical that you would like to see performed where you get to take the helm as its leader? Now is the time to take action. STAGE Cast Club is currently looking for directors for our 2019 season! What does that mean for you? We have already chosen some candidates for drama, comedy, and musical that we would like to see in our season lineup for 2019, and for those shows, we are looking for proposals for directors and production team members. We are also looking for additional productions to fill out our season.

To fill these slots, we are calling all directors to bid for the aforementioned shows for this season. If you think you have an additional project that will fit perfectly into our season, please submit a show proposal form for the show you wish to direct. Submissions for all proposals will be accepted from now through October 19 at 11:00pm. Completed proposal forms and submissions should be submitted through the form below. In addition, if you are invited to a live proposal, they will occur in early November.
Please note:  you must be a Cast Member, Crew Member or Imagineer of TWDC to be eligible to propose a show.  All members of the production team must meet the same criteria.

In addition, we would strongly consider a modern adaptation of any Shakespeare work in any of the categories.

The production schedule should be able to fill less than four months. Themes of this show should remain appropriate for a Walt Disney World audience.
