Rockville Little Theatre

Call For Directors

Bring a Rockville Little Theatre play to the stage.

Rockville Little Theatre is seeking Directors for our 2022-2023 season.

The 2022-2023 season will mark the 75th Anniversary of RLT and we want it to be a very celebratory season. Our guidelines are a little different from previous years, so please read carefully.

In addition to our usual method of requesting directing proposals for plays on the approved playlist, we are also open to director proposals for plays that are NOT currently on our list. (Please make sure to not repeat any show that RLT has previously produced. See our past productions.)

We will also consider small-scale musicals. These would be musicals with a small cast (15 and under) that only require a small pit (keyboard, percussion, and perhaps one or 2 other instruments).

2022-23 Performance Dates

September 2022: 23, 24, 25, 30, October 1, 2
January 2023: 27, 28, 29, February 3, 4, 5
April 2023: 28, 29, 30, May 5, 6, 7

If you are interested in directing for the 2022-2023 season, please submit no more than three proposals by July 31, 2021. Your submission should include:

  1. Cover letter indicating your play preference and availability for each of the season dates
  2. Resume (even if you have directed with us before)
  3. A short essay on why you are submitting the play.
  4. Your ideas on how to present the play.
  5. Production suggestions (period, costumes, number or type of sets, special set requirements, unusual technical issues, etc.).

Email your complete submission in Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF format to: Incomplete submissions will not be considered.

Directors are not paid.

Directors may be interviewed as part of the selection process.

The selected proposals are expected to be announced by November 1.

Send questions or requests for further information to:

Deadline: July 31, 2021

All our shows use Open Casting, with no roles pre-selected. RLT is committed to diversity, open to non-traditional casting, and will consider actors of all ethnicities.

Rockville Little Theatre is an all volunteer organization that presents classic favorites and contemporary treasures from famous dramatic names and some not-so-famous. We take to the stage in the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre. Although our name says "Little", the quality of our performances is anything but.
