Accepting Proposals for New Work Development Series - Springboard
In an effort to encourage artistic growth and spark creativity, CPT created Springboard. Springboard will perform in the Fall of 2012. Springboard seeks to nurture the growth of emerging and established directors, support the development of new scripts, and act as a catalyst for forming and deepening relationships between playwrights and directors.
In selecting directors for Springboard we are hoping to form a team with diverse training and backgrounds. We are looking for directors interested in innovating and in developing new work. Because directors will need to accomplish a great deal of work in the selection process, we will be looking for hard working people who can get the job done.
We are not necessarily looking for the most experienced directors. We want to find directors that will truly benefit from being part of this series.
Deadline for director application: June 11, 2012

Springboard is not about completed works, but it is about seeking excellence, creating meaningful connections, and taking risks.
