Theatre students are invited to submit proposals for projects to be included in UFV Theatre’s 2020-21 season. To be considered for directing shows, students should have completed or be enrolled in THEA 451 or 452, or have equivalent experience, and should have completed at least 60 university credits. We also recommend that student directors have completed THEA 121 and THEA 123. Proposed projects should be maximum 90 minutes in length, with casts of four or fewer performers, and minimal set and technical requirements. This is a call for proposals to be officially included in the season and require a high level of advance planning, organization, maturity, and responsibility on the part of student directors.

The department also offers students the opportunity to propose pop-up theatre projects, which are indie-style projects where the department provides students with performance space, minimal tech support, and a small budget – proposals for pop-up theatre projects are accepted on an ongoing basis and are scheduled after the official season is determined.
