Call For Directors

Eastbound Theatre Season 30

Eastbound Theatre in Milford, CT is currently in the process of selecting plays for our 30th season. We invite you to submit a proposal to direct for the 2024/2025 season.
Eastbound is a community theater with no professional affiliations. Members of professional theatrical unions should consult their guidelines regarding restrictions.
A division of the Milford Arts Council, EBT produces three main stage productions each season, each running for 3 weekends. Eastbound performs at the Milford Center for the Arts in downtown Milford, with proscenium stage, computerized light board and audience seating capacity of approximately 100.
Eastbound welcomes all genres of shows: Classic and contemporary comedies, mysteries, thrillers, dramas and (with careful planning) the occasional small scale musical.
We also want to encourage directors of all genders, race, backgrounds, and experiences to apply, as we want to expand our theater to tell stories of rich diversity.

Your proposal should include:

  • Your resume 

  • A list of the plays you wish to direct 

  • For each play listed: cast size, a brief synopsis, and technical requirements that would work in our space; as well as a brief summary of your vision for the show, any potential difficulties with the show, and your proposal for addressing them.

  • Your performance time slot preference(s).

The performance time slots are:

  • Slot 1: September/October, 2024

  • Slot 2: February, 2025

Slot 1: September/October, 2024 Slot 2: February, 2025
