East Brainerd Community Theater
The East Brainerd Community Theater is an outreach ministry of Christ United Methodist Church and exists to connect and build relationships between the church and the community through quality, meaningful, family-friendly theatrical experiences. All are welcome. Our goal is to present one musical and one play per year.
Call for Directors/Show Proposals:
EBCT is currently seeking Directors to direct a play of their choosing during our 2020 season. Area directors are encouraged to submit proposals for plays that will align to EBCT’s mission as an outreach ministry of Christ Church, and that are appropriate for our diverse audience. We are seeking comedies/dramas of small cast sizes that can be reasonably produced using our space’s technical capacity for lighting, sound, sets, and other staging limitations.
Deadline: Friday, November 22, 2019
Production run dates will be a WED-SUN (WED = “preview”) for a total of 5 performances over one weekend in early March - TBD w/Director (March 4-8 or March 11-15, 2020)
Please email your submission in MS-Word or .pdf format to:
All submissions will be reviewed by 12/06/2019, and you will be contacted by an EBCT Playfinding Committee representative with feedback and to discuss an opportunity to present your proposal in December to the EBCT Board as part of the final selection process.
Please email any questions ahead of your submission if necessary to: , or call 901-428-6286.
