Director Submissions

Theatre artists! ACT 1 is currently seeking director submissions for our 2019/2020 Season! Are you interested in putting up a socially-charged play, but you haven’t quite found the right platform for it? What about a new/original piece that you’ve been working on? Maybe even a comedy that you’d like to see on a Nashville stage? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then our next season is for you! We are ideally looking for artists who are interested in directing a show in one of the following three categories: Socially-Charged Works, Comedies, and New/Original Works.

We want to see what you’ve got! If interested, please submit your proposal to by Monday, April 8 at 11:59pm.

This proposal should be insightful yet succinct, detailing:

  • Title, author, and publisher
  • Cost of performance rights (you should be able to find this on the internet)
  • A short description of the show (150 word count)
  • Your vision for the production (500 word count)
  • Specific technical elements needed for the show (Lights, props, set, costumes required)
  • Any crew you already have on board to help you with the show
  • Potential budget
  • Any scheduling conflicts you might have for next season

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Katie Veglio at
