Each year, a new director or team of co-directors is chosen to facilitate and weave together our community-based collective storyboard imagining and creationing around the themes of the changing of the seasons, death and grieving, and the mysteries of life and death. In the past, a team of co-directors has worked very well and is a highly desirable asset, although not essential. The director(s) is(are) the hub and heart of communication between artists, crew, and administration, a mix of stipended staff and volunteers, who all bring vision, enthusiasm, and various histories of past participation to the highly collaborative creation of the unique Halloween Extravaganza experience!!
A director’s core responsibilities are-
- Facilitation of 4 or more community storyboard brainstorm meetings(Aug.-Sept), the elements of which you are responsible for weaving together to create the show.
- Presence and co-facilitation(with staff artists) at one Kick-off event(Sept) and build workshops three times a week for 6 weeks(Sept-Oct).
- Facilitation of development of show through open rehearsals on Sunday afternoons for 6 weeks(Sept-Oct), as well a final tech week with evening rehearsals.
- Presence and availability at each performance(6 nights) including Halloween night.
