2024 Director Call

Jimmy Buffett’s Escape to Margaritaville

Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre (ASGT), an outdoor community theatre celebrating its 58th anniversary, is seeking proposals from potential directors for one of the three productions planned for 2024 – “Jimmy Buffett’s Escape to Margaritaville” from June 27th to July 27th. We are open to creative settings and interpretations. Two productions for 2024 were director/show proposals. “The Prom” from May 23rd to June 15th will be directed by Brian Mellen and “Big Fish” from August 8th to September 1st will be directed by Leigh K. Rawls. We are seeking directors who have a passion to direct “under the stars” and understand and appreciate the rewards and challenges of presenting a musical outdoors in our historic setting across from the City Dock in downtown Annapolis.

Proposals should be fully developed with suggested staffing for key roles, if possible, and will be accepted on a rolling basis until October 1, 2023. All proposals will be acknowledged. After review by the Artistic Committee, we may ask for references.

ASGT is committed to nurturing a diverse and vibrant community of artists, volunteers and patrons that actively supports our presence in the community. We strive for professional quality in our community theatre productions and strive to cultivate a welcoming, fun and respectful atmosphere for all. We offer small stipends for key artistic staff positions.

Please review the Call For Directors and complete the Director Proposal Questionnaire if you are interested in making 2024 a banner year for Annapolis Summer Garden Theatre. Completed proposals should be submitted to production@summergarden.com.
