TCP is a dynamic, volunteer-based community-theatre organization in New Hamburg, Ontario. TCP produces a large-scale musical every spring and a smaller-scale non-musical every fall. As we have grown in ambition and ability over 30 years, our productions and process have earned widespread recognition for their scope, quality and team environment.
TCP’s Director Selection Process
Directing roles are:
- Musical Director (which may be split into two roles—Vocal Director and Orchestra Conductor)
All Directors report to TCP’s Artistic Director.
All Directors must work with TCP in accordance with their prescribed job descriptions which all candidates will receive.
Directing roles include a modest mileage reimbursement.
Anyone interested in directing for TCP may submit his or her name at any time throughout the year. The formal selection process, however, takes place in September. Roles for up to four future productions (two musicals and two non-musicals) will be under consideration.
Everyone who has expressed interest within the past year will be contacted and asked to sign a nondisclosure agreement with The Community Players of New Hamburg. Signing this agreement allows TCP to share confidential show information with candidates. If you are unable to sign this document, you cannot be considered as a director. Individuals who break this agreement will permanently remove themselves from any future directing consideration with TCP. Upon signing of the agreement, information about upcoming shows will be shared with candidates, who may then request to be considered for specific shows.
Directors may apply to direct consecutive productions, however these applications will be considered on a case by case basis.
TCP may decide to interview certain candidates, and all candidates will receive, in writing, the outcome of their application.
TCP will always post the current availability of upcoming directing roles on the TCP website.
Please keep in mind that, for reasons within and outside TCP’s control, planned shows may change or shift from their planned performance dates. In this event the Director who had been formally selected for a specific show will have first right of refusal for the same show in the new date. In the event the show is removed, all confirmed directing offers are also voided.
