August 1 - Proposals for 2018 Season Productions Due

It is time to start reading scripts for the 2018 season. Proposals are due by August 1. The show proposals must be submitted with a script to allow board members to read, prior to setting the season. If you have participated in a New Director Workshop at Gateway, assisted directed under an experienced director at Gateway, or have directed before at Gateway you can propose a play/musical by August 1. Proposals should be submitted to Pat Haddock; either mail them or drop them off at the Barn (111 Main Street, Southbridge, MA 01550).

There is a bookcase of scripts in the Green Room which potential directors are welcome to peruse. Proposal forms and instructions are available here and here. Please note that the costs already listed are the average estimates for a typical show done at the barn. These amounts can differ with Board approval. The costs also are typically higher for larger shows such as musicals.


The Youth Workshop planned for this summer will not be held due to not having enough participants. If you had already made a payment, we will send you a refund. We are currently working on another program that will be geared towards youth. Check back here shortly for more information.
