Lyric Music Theater 71st Season Director Proposals

Lyric Music Theater is now accepting Director submissions for our 2023-2024 season! These are paid positions. The Play Selection Committee and The Board of Directors will be choosing a slate of plays and musicals based on current title availability and their appeal to Lyric’s patron base. 

If you would like to apply to direct a play or musical at Lyric Music Theater during the 2023-2024 season, please submit the following:

• A current resume highlighting your directorial experience;

• A list of shows you are passionate about; but please know that for a variety of reasons, we may not be able to consider those particular shows

When our season’s slate is complete, the Play Selection Committee will reach out to Director Candidates, offering them the chance to discuss projects for which they are a good match.

If a director is selected to direct a show in the slate, the offer will be made relative to that show only, pending the approval of rights. If the rights to a particular title are lost, it is not a guarantee that that show’s director will be asked to direct the replacement show.

The above information can either be emailed to Performance Operations at, or mailed to:

Lyric Music Theater
176 Sawyer Street
South Portland, ME 04106
Attn: Play Selection Committee

All submissions must be received by February 22, 2023 to be eligible for consideration.
