Call for Directors and Plays for Playhouse 2018-2019 Season

by Whidbey Playhouse 13th September 2017




We are looking for YOU!!

We are looking for Directors  for our 2018-19 Show Season

Join us at the Whidbey Playhouse!




The Play Selection Committee of the Whidbey Playhouse invites all those interested in directing a play or musical during the Whidbey Playhouse's 2018-2019 Season to do so (2 productions maximum per director)!  Please print and review the following documents and submit applications to the Whidbey Playhouse with the requested materials to the attention of the Play Selection Committee.  Deadline is Oct. 15th, 2017.   


Play Submission and Play Day Plan for 2018 - 2019  


Playhouse Director Application for 2018-2019


Based on the number and variety of submissions made by the October 15 deadline, the Play Selection Committee may identify additional productions they feel would be good candidates to consider and will make outreach to potential directors to determine interest. 


We plan to hold our PLAY DAY event on Saturday, February 24, with a day of timed, performed samples from productions submitted by directors, selected from those submissions by the Play Selection Committee, and approved by the Board. 


Playhouse Members of record and actors or crew of Whidbey Playhouse shows are invited to attend this event to view these presentations.  They will then vote for those plays and musicals  they believe to be the best choices in 3 categories: Musicals, Comedies, and Non-comedies.  With input from the Play Selection Committee, the Board will select the shows for the season from those submitted.   Because the Board must consider the structure of the season, balanced with various types of plays, the availability of plays from publishers, and finding directors who wish to direct the shows, the Board cannot promise to pick only the shows with the most votes.  They will create a balanced season, keeping in mind both the desires of the membership and those who wish to audition for or work on shows.


We look forward to hearing from you.  If you have any questions, please forward them directly to the chair of the Play Selection Committee, Kevin Meyer, at
