BY: Beaver Dam Area Community Theatre - Beaver Dam, WI

On Monday, May 9th at 7:00 pm the Beaver Dam Area Community Theatre’s Production Committee will meet with anyone interested in directing a musical or play in 2017.  The meeting will be held at the theater which is located at 219 N. Spring St. in Beaver Dam.  Please enter by the side door on Third St. 

Please contact managing director, David Saniter, at (920) 885-6891 or if you have any questions or any help is needed filling out the application prior to the meeting.  Also, please contact BDACT if you are interested in directing but are unable to attend the meeting.  Perusal scripts for you to look at can be ordered through the managing director.

This list was developed by the BDACT Production Committee as an outline for the 2017 season.  This list in non-exclusive, meaning the Production Committee will consider any show pitched by any Director.  This list was developed with consideration of cast, crew, stage, genre, potential audience, diversity of BDACT offerings and local market past performances.  Stage II and tour group approval will be based on stage availability with main stage shows taking precedence; however, there will be overlap in facility use.  It is imperative for BDACT to provide a continuous stream of revenue generating activities to be financially stable.  Our main stage shows will consist of 7 or 8 performances with open auditions.  Honorariums will be paid.   As a Community Theater BDACT wishes to provide support and encouragement to all non-professional cast and crew and sincerely appreciates all volunteers.  The following are time frames desired and potential show list:
