Have you been following the adventures of the 2012 Shaw Festival apprentice directors Michael Wheeler and Krista Jacksonon on Praxis Theatre? Eager to test out your directorial mettle with a one-act play from the Shaw mandate? The deadline to apply for the 2013 Neil Munro Intern Directors Project at the Shaw Festival is approaching.
Each season, the Shaw Festival hires two Intern Directors. They look for promising professional directors at a point in their career where an extended residency with a company like the Shaw Festival will be of benefit to their professional development. Applicants should have a good amount of professional experience but will not have had an opportunity to work on the scale of production that is characteristic of the Shaw Festival. The contract can start as early as mid-February or as late as mid-March and generally runs through September, depending on the production schedule for the particular season.
Since its inception in 1988, the project has been sponsored annually by Sun Life Financial and Theatre Ontario. The application deadline for the 2013 Neil Munro Intern Directors Project at the Shaw Festival is June 29, 2012 at 5pm.
