Call for Directors

for the 2024-2025 season


The Footlighters, Inc. is accepting submissions for directors for the 2024-2025 season. Interested directors must submit their theatrical resume and the shows they are interested in pitching. Directors will be allowed to submit up to two productions for consideration. In a recent survey, our patrons have expressed that their favorite types of shows are large comedic musicals, followed by small comedic musicals and comedic plays. However, ALL submissions will be considered equally regardless of whether they are of the previously listed genres or not. 

We are seeking directorial candidates who feel they can bring a fresh and inclusive perspective to the shows they’ve submitted, and we encourage directors from diverse backgrounds, whether you’ve directed for Footlighters before or not, to apply.

All submissions must be emailed to the Season/Director Committee Chair, Jim Curtis, at The deadline to submit materials is Sunday, October 29, 2023. Interested directors will be contacted to schedule interviews for the week of November 12th. Interviews will take place at the Stained Glass Theatre.

We will produce a four-show season for 2024-2025, so we will be selecting four directors and four productions for our season.  We are looking for directors who possess strong vision, an ability to produce marketable shows, and a knowledge of the Footlighters community with regard to the patrons whom we serve.  Should you have additional questions or need assistance, please email, and we will be happy to help.
