Directors Festival


With Directors Festival 2007 representing our 12th glorious season, the RTC Directors Festival continues the Fullerton College Theatre Departmentís promise to provide all who are interested the opportunity to participate in the creation of live theatre. Professionals, amateurs, mentors and students are all welcome to this experimental forum for directors.

The guidelines are simple-a project must be no longer than 50 minutes, it must be able to be set-up and taken down in less than ten minutes, and it must utilize only one lighting special. The rest is up to the ingenuity, resourcefulness, and imagination of the director and his/her collaborators. A distinguished panel of critics and theatre professionals adjudicates projects. The artistic directors, considering the input from the critics, choose the projects to go on to Best of the Fest, which follows on the Saturday night of Festival week. All performances take place in the Bronwyn Dodson Theatre, a black box theatre with seating for 120 patrons.

First time directors need to complete the Directing Class at Fullerton College or provide proof of sufficient experience and training to qualify for a directing slot. First time directors will be interviewed by Chuck Ketter
