Philly's Primary Stages, the premier staged reading series of 10 minute plays, needs you to DIRECT for our upcoming readings entitled "Family Matters!" 

 This is a script-in-hand series that is entering it's 8th year of blurring the lines between a night of plays being read script-in-hand, and a fully produced night of theater. We rehearse a few times to find the moments that make the plays work. We also use simple lights, sounds, sets (think theater cubes and chairs), props and costumes.

 All this is done in the intimate setting of the Shubin Theatre, in South Philly!

 Since the number one goal of the program is to help writers develop their plays, and in their craft, you will work in collaboration with a writer, actors and the audience.

 Our upcoming readings will happen over two nights, Tuesday and Wednesday, 11/22 or 11/23, with two different sets of plays being performed...i.e. the play you direct, will be read on ONE of those nights. You would also be expected to come to a very short tech on Monday, 11/21.

 This is a non-paid gig but you will be rewarded with a VERY satisfying experience in a VERY cool program that makes staged readings rock so hard we even make it a party with beer, wine, soda, bottled water, chips, dips, vienna sausages, and puddin' packs being served. We even throw in a pre-show set, and live outro music, from our house band, Hot Breakfast!

 In short, this is a great series in which many directors have developed in their craft over the years. Shouldn't you be one of them?

 If interested, please forward your resume and contact info to Todd Holtsberry, Producer, at , or call him at 267-231-8394.

 Philly's Primary Stages is Co-Sponsored by the PDC, Secret Room Theatre, and the Shubin Theatre.
