Show Proposal Workshop and Open House

We are getting ready to begin planning our 2017/2018 season. As part of that preparation we want to show everyone what our Artistic Direction committee is looking for in a show proposal.

This workshop will be held at 95 Crimea St. in Guelph on Sunday, June 12, from 2pm to 6pm.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for both seasoned and new directors to:

  • Meet members of the AD Committee and the RCMPI Board of Directors
  • Learn what elements make for an effective show proposal
  • Gain access to team-building networking
  • Hear tips and tricks for the interview process

We will be presenting materials at the workshop, which will ultimately be made available on our website, but joining us on the 12th will give you first hand access to AD and Board members to ask questions and network.

Immediately after the workshop, our Call for Proposals will be opened for our Fall 2017 and Spring 2018 shows. This Call for Proposals will remain open until mid-September, giving directors ample time to research their shows and assemble their teams. Interviews will be held in early October, with the successful shows being announced leading into our Fall 2016 Show, The Wizard of Oz.

This workshop is open to members and non-members alike, we hope to see you there!
