Call for Directors

First Run Theatre is looking for a Director for its upcoming show in July and another for its production at the St Louis Theatre Crawl in June.

FRT only produces new work by Midwest playwrights, which have not been performed previously, so this is a rare opportunity to work directly with the author of the material, and help develop it for its premiere. Two short plays have been selected by the FRT Board to be produced at the Theatre Guild Of Webster Groves’ theatre on 19-21 and 26-28 July 2019.  Both pieces will be presented during the evening.

The plays to be presented are

Overdone  by David Hawley, a one act comedy approximately 50 minutes long


Screaming at Optimum Pitch by Peg Flach, a set of three linked monologues about 25 minutes long in total.

It is expected that there will be a process of workshopping the play with the author, and some actors, prior to the usual process of auditions and rehearsals.

The FRT production for the theatre crawl will consist of two ten-minute plays which are still to be selected.

A small stipend is available.
