Guest Director Process
Calling all Guest Directors: INSPIRE OTHERS! Bring your visions to life.
DreamWrights Center for Community Arts provides creative educational experiences through inclusive intergenerational performance and theatre arts programming. Part of our mission of educating people of all ages is realized by providing unique opportunities for Guest Directors.
DreamWrights provides a supportive environment for directors to work with a variety of individuals as a team to collaborate and create an outstanding production. Utilizing different directors also allows the actors, crew, designers, staff, and audiences to experience different leadership styles and creative visions.
Working closely with guidance and mentoring from the Director of Artistic Programming, each Guest Director will effectively share a vision for the production and then bring this vision to life through the rehearsal and performance process. This is a volunteer position that receives a small thank you stipend.
