Looking for Directors!

Hello, Spotlight Theatre Friends!

We are now accepting play and musical submissions for the 2019/20 Season!

This year, we are trying a somewhat new approach to our process.  We have gathered a list of shows we would like potential directors to consider submitting. We feel these pieces are well-suited to Spotlight for a variety of reasons, such as: content; cast size; ease of production; etc.  And we have selected them from all genres: classic dramas to contemporary comedies and everything in-between.

However, if you would like to submit a play or musical that is not on this list, you are more than welcome to do so.  We shall consider EVERY submission we receive.  We just ask that you use this list as a “jumping off point,” so you know in advance what types of productions we feel are best for Spotlight.

The plays and musicals we have pre-screened are as follows:

Buried Child by Sam Shepard – drama

The Children’s Hour by Lillian Hellman – drama

The Cocktail Party by T.S. Eliot – drama

Deathtrap by Ira Levin – thriller

A Delicate Balance by Edward Albee – drama

Dracula by John Mattera (based on Bram Stoker’s original) – thriller

An Enemy of the People by Arthur Miller (based on Henrik Ibsen’s original) – drama

Glengarry Glen Ross by David Mamet – drama

On Golden Pond by Ernest Thompson – drama/comedy

Hay Fever by Noel Coward- comedy/farce

Incorruptible by Michael Hollinger – comedy

Marjorie Prime by Jordan Harrison – drama

The Normal Heart by Larry Kramer – drama

Separate Tables by Terrence Rattigan – drama

The Shining City by Conor McPherson – drama

Sylvia by A.R. Gurney – comedy

Waiting for Godot by Samuel Beckett- drama/comedy

Any Neil Simon plays (EXCEPT The Odd Couple and Barefoot in the Park)

Any Tennessee Williams plays

And the musicals we are very interested in considering are:

 The Fantastiks

A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder

The Great American Trailer  Park Musical

Next to Normal



The Wedding Singer

Please note: our Children’s Show (with adult actors) has already been selected, so we will not be accepting submissions for additional children’s shows for this season.

 The Play Proposal Form is located below.  We ask that you return your submissions – to the email address listed on the form –  no later than January 15, 2019 for full consideration.  

The Board of Directors at Spotlight Theatre thanks you for your interest in and support of our endeavors, and we look forward to receiving your submissions.
