Aurora Players is an all-volunteer community theater group that stages productions in the 200 seat Roycroft Pavilion in East Aurora, New York. The 2017 play season is scheduled and promises to provide great theatrical entertainment in the Buffalo Southtowns area. As the Play Reading Committee prepares to discuss the 2018 production season, the first priority is the solicitation of Directors for our 84th season. Therefore, we are asking Directors who may be interested in volunteering, to consider submitting a musical, comedy, drama, thriller or mystery to the Aurora Players Play Reading Committee by March 31, 2017.
For each submission, we ask prospective Directors to complete the Director’s Submission Form. The information you provide will tell us about your play and outline the various technical aspects. The last two pages of the form deal with the set requirements and include a blank sketch of the dimensions and sight lines of the Pavilion stage. Use this sketch to submit a general idea of your set. If the play or musical involves set changes, please submit any additional sketches/explanations as needed. We realize that some aspects could change, but we need to have a general feeling for your set requirements. Note that submissions for a musical require Directors to identify the Directors of music and choreography. A prospective Director can submit up to three plays. If you find there is not enough room on the form to address any question, please attach additional information.
You will also note we are requesting prospective Directors to provide the Play Reading Committee with a copy of the script. We will return the script to you within two weeks. Aurora Players does maintain a modest script library and you are welcome to contact the Play Reading Committee, should you wish to see if your play is in the collection.
Prospective Directors should submit their information by March 31, 2017. However, it would be a great help if you were able to complete the submission process any time before that date. Should you have any questions please contact the Play Reading Committee.
On behalf of Aurora Players, we appreciate your consideration and welcome your ideas. With your help, 2018 will become another great season for Aurora Players.
