CHURCH HILL — While the plays for the 2020 season have been chosen, Church Hill Theatre is seeking directors to help bring the shows to life.

Directors’ proposals are due no later than Aug. 30 and should be submitted directly to the executive manager. Selected directors will be notified by Sept. 15.

Any interested individuals can submit a proposal to direct to Executive Manager Hester Sachse. To review scripts, contact Sachse. She can be reached via email at or by calling the office at 410-556-6003.

Directors are needed for:

“Other Desert Cities” by Jon Robin Baitz — on stage from Jan. 17 to Feb. 2

“The Philadelphia Story” by Philip Barry — on stage from March 20 to April 5

“Into the Woods” with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine — on stage from June 5 to June 21

“The Outgoing Tide” by Bruce Graham — on stage from Sept. 11 to Sept. 27

“Last of the Red Hot Lovers” by Neil Simon — on stage from Nov. 6 to 22

Production slots have some flexibility except for “Into the Woods.”

Proposals must include a résumé of theatrical and directorial experience, including credits and training. The applicant should also include a brief description of why they wish to direct at CHT.

Each potential director will be considered for all 2020 productions but should indicate their preferences of titles and any conflicts. Only one proposal needs to be submitted per individual.

A committee established by the CHT board of directors will review the applications and may contact the applicants for additional information.
