Attention DramaFest Directors

One of the most dun shows of the year, DramaFest, is coming up! Student playwrights have been working hard on their scripts, and it's now time for student directors to take the wheel.

If you are interested in directing one of the 10 minute plays, there is a mandatory informational meeting Thursday, April 26th from 2-3 pm. At this meeting you'll learn what it takes to be a director, how to direct a 10 minute play, and what the directing process will look like. The director application will also be due the same day, and there will be time to fill it out during the meeting.

Monday April 30th is the day that directors will be reading and selecting all the plays, so directors should be ready to stay at school from 2-6 pm. Reading and selecting plays might not take that long, but it's a safe estimate of how long it might take.

The auditions for DramaFest will be Monday May 7th from 2:30-5 and callbacks will be Tuesday May 8 from 2-5. Directors are required to be at both days.

We're excited to see you all there!
