CURTAIN UP! PROJECTS
LET'S PUT ON A SHOW
DAOR seeks your ideas and projects for our 2022 season.
Do you have an original script ready for production? A published one-act or related short plays presented as a staged or memorized performance? A program of insight into a playwright, historic era or stagecraft technique?
We are calling these member-driven projects Curtain Up! They are to run about an hour in length. Each Curtain Up! project must have a producer. (The producer may not also act as the director.) The producer(s) is responsible for obtaining rights (if applicable) and recruiting a production team. The production team is responsible for casting, rehearsals, props, and costumes. Casting may be done by open audition or invitation. If the project is a lecture or demonstration the producer will be responsible to act as the liaison with the presenter(s).
DAOR will provide rehearsal space scheduling, curtains, sometimes lights, publicity and programs. Projects will be presented one or two times on a Friday and/or Saturday afternoon.
The Artistic Committee will decide which submissions will be Curtain Up! presentations based on quality, suitability (can we do this given our resources), financial considerations and general interest.
