This is an opportunity for directors to show off their craft in an exciting new way with a really cool prize.
Each director participating in this challenge will be given the SAME 10 Minute generic script. Exactly the same script! The script has dialogue written for three characters - they can be male, female, farmers, musicians, millionaires, anything, all depending upon what the director decides. There is no setting, no time of day, nothing other than this semi-dramatic dialogue between 3 un-specified characters. It is up to the director to make all clear and create dramatic or comedic action.
Each Director Challenge "play" will be given a 15 minute Tech rehearsal, a full Dress rehearsal with the other Director Challenge plays and two performances. Audience will vote for the best Director Challenge play by a 3,2,1 ballot - each audience member voting on their favorite 3 plays, 3 is the best, 2 is the second best and 1 is the 3rd best. At the end of two performances, the Director Challenge play with the highest numbers will win the Director Challenge!
