Call for Directors – 2018 Season

Broadview Heights Spotlights Theater is pleased to accept applications for directors for our 2018 season for the following main-stage performances:

Dividing The Estate by Horton Foote, April 27 – May 12, 2018

Produced by Adam Bowers and Jean Brennan

Dividing the Estate is the story of the Gordon clan, a Texas family who has been hard hit by the precipitous drop in oil prices in 1987. Family matriarch Stella rules over the family, but she is 85 years old and her family smells their inheritance coming. The family bickers as only a Southern family can, mentioning every slight and insult that has occurred over the past 80 years.

The Importance of Being Earnest 
by Oscar Wilde, August 24-September 8, 2018

Produced by Tara Corkery and Sarah Price

In The Importance of Being Earnest, dashing men-about-town John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff pursue fair ladies Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. Matters are complicated by the imaginary characters invented by both men to cover their on-the-sly activities — not to mention the disapproval of Gwendolen’s mother, the formidable Lady Bracknell.

Mr. A’s Amazing Maze Plays by Alan Ayckbourn, October 6-14, 2018

Produced by Ryan Bergeron and Stephanie Malfara

Note: This production is part of our Theater for Young Audiences Series

Suzy lives in a cottage with her mother and her dog, Neville. Suave but sinister Mr. Acousticus moves into the big house across the street and Neville suddenly loses his bark. Suzy is certain the new neighbor is responsible so she and Neville search his house. What happens next? It’s up to the audience in this imaginative tale.
