Director Proposals

Submissions for our 2024 Christmas Show are now open. Use the form below to submit your show proposal(s). All submissions must be received by March 15, 2023 in order to be considered.

While your proposal does not have to be a "children's show" or even geared toward youth, it does have to be something that our community members would feel comfortable bringing their children to. Shows with very adult themes, violence, foul language, or heavy sexual innuendo are not a fit for this particular annual holiday slot.

Before you begin, please note our policy on pre-casting: While Red Octopus Theatre Company does not prohibit directors from pre-casting, we prefer that they don't, and we require that these intentions be FULLY DISCLOSED to the Board at the time a show is proposed (e.g. now). We also require that any pre-cast roles be FULLY DISCLOSED to the public at (or before) the time that auditions are announced. Holding "open" auditions for roles that aren't actually available is a waste of actor time and is disrespectful, so please FULLY disclose any casting intentions here. (Please also note that your desire to pre-cast may impact our decision regarding producing your show.)

If you are proposing more than one show, you will need to fill out a separate submission form for each.
