Call for Directors, Eastbound Theatre, Season 26!

Eastbound Theatre in Milford, CT is beginning the process of selecting plays for our 26th season.  We welcome you to submit a proposal to direct for the 2019/2020 season. Eastbound is a community theater with no professional affiliations.  Members of professional theatrical unions should consult their guidelines regarding restrictions.

Eastbound welcomes all genres of shows, in either suggested black box sets or literal staging.  We welcome classic and contemporary comedies, mysteries, thrillers, dramas and (with careful planning) the occasional small scale musical. 

Please send us a list of the plays you wish to direct (including cast size/breakdown, a brief synopsis, and technical requirements) that would work in our space, along with your performance time slot preference(s). Generally, each director submits 3-5 possibilities, with a mix of comedies, dramas and others for a balanced season.

Please give us a synopsis that reflects your particular vision for the show, rather than what is listed on the publisher’s website.  We like to know what excites you about the projects you choose.

The performance time slots are:

Slot 1: Late September/October, 2019
Slot 2: February, 2020
Slot 3: June, 2020

Deadline for submissions is March 1, 2019. You may submit via email to ebtmac@gmail.com or by regular mail:
