Abilene Community Theatre is seeking directors for our 2019-2020 Season, “ACT Remembers!”, a celebration of ACT’s 65 seasons!

Since our opening season in 1954, ACT has mounted almost 430 different productions up through the current season! From that rich history of theatre, ACT’s Production Committee has narrowed the list down to some of the most memorable plays performed, and six of those will be produced in 2019-2020!

The 2019-2020 Director Application Package contains the information prospective directors will need to complete their proposal packets. This includes an application, proposal guidelines, and the narrowed-down list of past productions to select shows from.

Proposal submissions will include:

  • A completed application

  • A copy of the director’s theatrical resume

  • A proposal for each play considered for (director candidates can submit for up to 3 plays)


Click the button below to download the submission form and then email to Mike Stephens, ACT Board Vice-President of Production and Support and ACT Media at getintheactproduction@gmail.com. You can also email Mike to have a form sent to you.

Deadline for proposal submissions is midnight on January 14th, with directors and shows being selected in February. The 2019-2020 Season “ACT Remembers!” will open in August/September of 2019 and conclude in May/June of 2020.

After additional discussion with the ACT Production Committee and requests from some of you, we are expanding the list of potential shows you can submit proposals for to our entire history, with the following exceptions:

* no musicals
* no shows performed by any other area theatres (besides high schools) in the last 5 years (In the case of student directed shows the cutoff for consideration will be moved up from 5 years to 2 years.)
* no shows performed on the ACT stage in the last 10 years

To assist in this process, the link below will allow you to download a document containing of the majority of theatre productions in Abilene since ACT started in 1954.

NOTE: the only shows I have pulled scripts for are those in the original list. Contact me (Mike Stephens at getintheactprodution@gmail.com) if you are interested in a specific script, and I can see if we might have it, but it may take me some time to do so (like you, I work).
