Workshops are the most exciting part of the festival! If you are interested in presenting a workshop or other interactive event geared towards student development in the craft directing please contact us with your proposal.

Please include your name, phone number, email address, institutional or professional affiliation, a copy of your CV, and a brief description of your proposed workshop and/or interactive event.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Faculty/Professional Mentorship Opportunity

Contribute, on a personal level, to the development of a young artist.

If you are a faculty member and/or professional theatre director who has interest in mentoring a student director participating in the 10-Minute Play Festival Student Directing Program we applaud your enthusiasm and passion for the theatre arts!  These students deserve our support.

Please send, via email, a brief cover letter stating your desire to serve as a mentor, why you wish to serve in this capacity, along with a copy of your CV to Region 6, SDC SDI Coordinator Emily Heugatter at eheugatter@uco.edu. Include any information regarding your experience in the tasks of mentoring and/or new play development.

The mentor relationship begins at the Festival. You will have the opportunity to meet your student director at a brief 10-Minute Play Festival overview meeting, usually on the first day of the festival. You will be expected to attend the open casting session and the final presentation of the work. Throughout the week, you will be expected to attend a minimum of one rehearsal and throughout the festival be available to the student director who may need counsel throughout the process.

Thank you for your interest in the KCACTF Region 6 Directing Program.
