Theatre Kelowna Society is looking to produce its best season yet, and is hunting for the Okanagan's top directing talent. We want up-and-coming and seasoned talented thespians to submit scripts they wish to direct next season. If you would like to take advantage of TKS’s pool of resources (including talent, logistical and financial support) to bring your vision to life, here is your chance.
We are looking for scripts/treatments with directors attached. They must fall within one of the three categories below.
- Fall Show – This is a cabaret focused show and does not require a traditional narrative or dialogue. Treatments will be accepted.
- Christmas Show – This must encourage child participation and be geared towards a younger audience. Traditional pantomimes fit into this slot well.
- Spring Show - This is for the O-Zone festival. While it has the freedom to be in almost any genre/style, must take into account the festival logistics/expenses.
To be considered you will need to submit your chosen script/treatment plus provide a 200-word (max) vision statement. If your submission is chosen for further consideration we will ask you to come sit with our Script Committee “Dragons” for a Dragons Den style pitch meeting. The submission deadline is Sunday March 31st.
Experience is not a definitive factor, but we recommend you have some body of work (any theatre related) for the committee to refer to.
Please note TKS is a non-profit society and all work is on a voluntary basis.
You can send your script to us at firstname.lastname@example.org Or mail/drop it off at Rotary Centre of the Arts c/o Theatre Kelowna Society 421 Cawston Ave Kelowna, BC V1Y 6Z1
We look forward to hearing from you, good luck!
