Open Call for Directors

Open Call for Directors

Inclusive Theater of WNY in collaboration with WNY Improv are looking for emerging and experienced directors for our January 2022 production of short plays by WNY playwrights at The Meeting House in Williamsville, NY.

Interested directors should be available December 13 and 14 for in person auditions.  Performances will take place January 20-23, 2022 and rehearsals will begin at the beginning of January.

If you are a director, or are interested in directing, please make us aware of your interest by emailing your theater resume (and if you don’t yet have one, tell us why you’d like to direct!) and a letter of introduction to inclusivetheaterofwny@gmail.com by December 1, 2021.

Also, if you have a comedic short play by a WNY playwright that you would like to direct, please also provide the information about the play to us.  If you do not have a specific play in mind, we have plays for you to choose from.

Interviews will take place virtually the first week of December.

We are committed to diversity at all levels: on our stage, in our audience, on our staff, and within our leadership. We want our stage to represent the amazing diversity of the Buffalo community. We strongly encourage candidates of diverse backgrounds to apply.

Note: For the safety of the actors, production crew, and audience members, all directors must show proof of COVID vaccination.
