JCCT Accepting Directors’ Proposals

Anyone interested in directing a play for Jackson County Community Theatre’s next season is invited to submit a proposal for consideration by the board of directors. Proposal forms may be obtained by clicking the link at the right.

There are four productions in the mainstage theatre season. In addition, the youth program, JCYAT, produces two shows per year. The group tries to balance the season with comedies, dramas, musicals, and mysteries. Plays proposed should be of appropriate content for the community. 

The mainstage season begins with a show in the summer, usually in September. The second play is typically a holiday themed show presented in late November to early December. The third production is the dinner theatre in February. The season ends with a production in late April and/or early May. The JCYAT productions are typically held in July (following the summer workshop) and late January. 

Directors submitting proposals should indicate their preferred dates. The committee will review all proposals received and select four for the coming season. We regret that we can select no more than four. If you are interested in directing, and are flexible as to which play is being presented, please make that known to the committee as well.

Call Out for Directors, Assistant Directors, and Production Managers!

Jackson County Community Theatre’s Season Selection Committee is currently planning their 49th (Summer 2018-Spring 2019) and 50th (Summer 2019-Spring 2020) Seasons. The foundation is in place for some really exciting productions as the theatre heads towards our 50th and Golden Anniversary Season!

If you would like to submit a show for consideration in either season, please contact our committee chair, John Hiester, to discuss your ideas. John can be reached via e-mail at jhiester1234@gmail.com. Should you desire to direct and do not have a show in mind, please contact him regardless as we encourage new faces in our theatre and have a few we are considering.

Please consider this a nudge from old Willy Shakespeare himself and contact us!

We’re also looking for Production Managers (which we used to call producers). Production Managers are responsible for assisting the director with logistics as the play is planned, rehearsed, and performed. More information is available below in the “Guidelines for Producers” document.
