SHORT PLAYS directed and performed by local high school students
Calling All Student Directors!
The Avalon Theatre in Easton, MD is kicking off a new program for area high school
students titled WINTER SHORTS! Finally, the opportunity to create the production that YOU have wanted, working alongside friends with the same interests!
Our WINTER SHORTS program will allow high school students to work independently in all production areas including, but not limited to, directing, casting, blocking,
costuming, set design and lighting design. With members of the Avalon Staff available to mentor you throughout the process, this is your opportunity to realize your own
artistic vision on the Avalon Stage.
The student director should possess the following qualities:
- Organizational/planning ability and time management skills
- Comfortable with giving stage directions
- Understanding of stage blocking/movement and able to express artistic vision
Does this sound like you?
- All applications must be submitted with a complete script (read time should not exceed 30 minutes)
- All plays submitted will be selected based on the quality of the work, its appropriateness to the audience; its viability in our venue; its “fit” with the other plays selected; etc.
- Self-written plays may be submitted, in addition to works of other authors.
- Tentative performance dates: February 28 - March 1, 2020 (with a guarantee of at least 2 performances)
- WINTER SHORTS selections will be announced by Friday, November 1st.
- WINTER SHORTS audition dates TBD following a director’s production meeting
