Ghostlight Ensemble is seeking directors for its fourth annual Make/Believe festival for young audiences set for live, outdoor performances in May and June.
The festival will feature five short plays written by playwrights from Chicago and around the country. A summary of the scripts is available on the 2023 Make/Believe page.
In particular we are seeking Korean American, Greek American and Black directors, but encourage all BIPOC and LBGTQIA+ directors to apply. We welcome early career directors or actors interested in branching into directing and will provide a company mentor to help you through the process.
Rehearsals will be scheduled around cast and director availability.
A technical rehearsal is scheduled for May 25 from 5 to 10 p.m. (Pieces will be scheduled so directors will not be required to attend the entire tech.) Tech and performance will take place outside at the NorthCenter Town Square.
