As you may already be aware, the 2016-17 season will begin with the much-awaited addition of the new elevator and other improvements. Read more There will no doubt be a lot of excitement and anticipation from our patrons and volunteers alike. Therefore, we hope you will select shows that are crowd pleasers, fun and uplifting. Construction will commence in the summer of 2016 so there will not be a Fall Opener slot at the Guild. The committee will be entertaining ideas for off-site shows for the Fall slot. Please write down your idea(s) in the area designated on the form. The committee and the Board of Directors will review all ideas and decide if producing a show off-site is feasible.

Please select a maximum of three shows you would be interested in directing and submit each on a separate form provided in this packet. You will need to make a copy of the form for each selection. We have included a calendar of dates and rehearsal periods as well as sample standard budgets. There will be additional forms on our website should you need more.

The deadline to submit is December 18. Please provide two copies of each play you submit for the committee to read. Send all forms and plays to: Kathryn Murray, 56 Valley Crest Way, Bellingham, WA 98229 or drop them off (when the Guild is open) in the VP of Production mailbox in the House Manager's Office at the Guild.

Should you have any questions, feel free to call me at 647-2873 and leave a message. We look forward to working with you in the coming season.
