Spring Show, 2021

Royal City Musical Productions (RCMPI) is accepting show proposals from directors for the 2021 spring production which we expect to perform in the River Run Centre Co-operators Hall in late April 2021.

A presentation on best practices for proposals and interviews is available for reference.

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS is February 28th, 2020 at 11:59pm

Submissions are to be sent to:
ad@rcmpi.ca

Due to the size restrictions of the Co-operators Hall, RCMPI spring productions involve a medium sized cast (20-30), typically do not mic the performers and cannot use a flying system.

More information about Co-operators Hall for reference.

A list of our past shows is available on our website.
Other examples of shows that could work for the spring show are The Producers, Young Frankenstein, Cabaret, The Addams Family, Godspell, The Wedding Singer, Pippin, The Little Mermaid, Avenue Q. Directors are not limited to this list. It is for example only; all submissions will be evaluated.

-Artistic Vision (set, blocking, costumes, makeup, etc.)
