To develop new directors of vision in the Austin area we have developed our New Directions program. The goal is to fully produce a show and let a young director (under 35) with no professional credits direct the show. While getting your foot in the door in acting, crew, or design is difficult, getting started in directing is even more difficult.
The director will be chosen from an application process includes submission of theatrical resume and a letter of interest, interview, and supporting visual materials. The Artistic Director, Company Member, and former New Directions Directors will review the applicants.
The director will choose a show, cast the show, collaborate with designers, and rehearse the show for production as part of FronteraFest’s Long Fringe schedule. Capital T will compensate the director for their skills and time as well as the actors, crew and designers. We feel this program will allow young central Texans with an opportunity to develop and grow as artists while enhancing Austin arts scene with fresh new voices. As our mission states we want to stay committed to developing these voices in Austin.
