Seeking Play Selection Committee members for 2020-2021 season!

 In News

Anyone who is interested in serving on the Play Selection Committee and choosing Elmwood’s 2020-2021 season, please submit an email to by Monday, July 29th. If you have not served on Play Selection previously, the Board Committee may conduct a short interview with those who express interest.

The Play Selection Committee is a fun and rewarding way for members to serve Elmwood. The Committee reads plays suggested by directors and others to determine a balanced season of six shows that will appeal to our audiences and yet be practical for Elmwood to produce. The Committee then meets with all potential directors to discuss their ideas and determine which shows and which directors can be selected. The Committee puts together a proposed season of shows and directors and submits it to the Board of Directors for their approval.

The PSC shapes our season, upholding our standard of professional quality productions that entertain and can be challenging and thought-provoking as well.

We are looking for people who:

• Want to assist Elmwood by serving on its most important committee, which will determine Elmwood’s artistic direction in its 2020-2021 season
• Are willing to dedicate their time to numerous meetings and reading a large number of scripts (probably between 50-100 scripts over the course of 7-8 months)
• Have a wide knowledge of plays and musicals
• Have an understanding of Elmwood’s capabilities and audiences to determine a commercially viable season

To apply, please send an email to by Monday, July 29, 2019. The email should state your interest in serving and a brief description of your qualifications. These may include the length of time you’ve participated at Elmwood, your familiarity with different plays and musicals and whether you have a unique or unusual viewpoint that could add to the diversity of opinions on the Committee. If you feel your qualifications are already well known to the Board Committee, a simple one-line email stating your interest will suffice.
