The seeds are sewn. Cultivate the growth of theatre in bloom™.

While all staff positions with the BTP are currently 100% volunteer, certain roles require specific experience and/or training to be able to perform the tasks necessary. For that reason, we have an application process for these positions on the creative/production staff, in our pit orchestras, and for our Board of Directors.

For descriptions on any of these positions, please read our job descriptions briefs, coming soon.

 

APPLY FOR DIRECTORSHIP

BTP is now accepting applications from qualified applicants to direct future productions. Ideal candidates are creative, talented, and experienced musical theatre directors whom are organized, have a clear theatrical vision, and are capable of educating performers and participants from ages 9–90 in all requisite facets of the theatrical arts. BTP is specifically looking for directors with specific shows in mind to be produced, but is also accepting candidates to enter our directors pool for future productions. Ideal show suggestions will be family-friendly, featuring a large cast, accessible to all ages as both performers and audience, and will serve as an excellent gateway to introduce Sanger to the community theatre experience. The application team (currently our Board of Directors) may request an interview with candidates before making a decision. Due to our affiliation with Sanger Unified School District, a background check will be required before applicants can participate with the organization.

BTP is also entertaining suggestions from directorship applicants for creative/production staff to be brought in for his/her production (for example, a director may have a music director, choreographer, and scenic designer s/he works well with). If the application panel considers appointing suggested personnel, they will also be required to interview before a final decision is made.
