Director Application Information

OTP continues to celebrate the arts and our volunteers with passion, enthusiasm and downright fun! Recently your Artistic Committee has put the final touches on selecting the 2017-18 OTP Season. We have chosen a variety of genres with something to delight everyone.

It is now time to focus on Director selection. This year we will be dividing up the season and holding Director interviews in both April and May. We will announce the complete season of show Directors upon completion of the May interviews. Once Directors are chosen, we will hold a Directors/Producers meeting in June.

Here is a link to the online Director Application: 

You may choose to interview for several productions. If you are interested in being considered as the Director for more than one play, please fill out a separate application for each play for which you wish to be considered. This may mean that you will be interviewed both in April and May, depending on where your play falls in the interview schedule. Once the application deadline has passed, you will receive an email with your interview dates.

If you have never directed a play before at OTP, please consider directing and applying for a Studio show. 

At the Director interview, you will be asked a set of questions. We are sharing these questions in advance so you will be fully prepared for your interview that will last approximately 25 minutes. Please come with the most complete answers you can. You can find the questions here

Thank you so much for your interest in Directing during the OTP 2017-18 season. We look forward to meeting with you and hearing your exciting ideas! If you have any questions, contact Debbie Hershey at:
