Call for Student Supported Slots!

THE STUDENT SCRIPT ADVISORY COMMITTEE (SSAC) IS NOW ACCEPTING PROPOSALS FOR THE SELF-PRODUCED STUDENT PROJECTS.

Proposal Deadline: Friday, September 9th, 2022

Please submit proposals to chelseabushnell@lclark.edu for review and include *SPSP2022* in the Subject line.  The SSAC will make a decision by September 23rd.

Performances: November 11th-12th, 2022


This is an additional directing/producing/performing opportunity titled “Self-Produced Student Projects.” All you need to do is to propose a project, submit it to the Student Script Advisory Committee (SSAC) and – if your project is chosen – begin rehearsal for performance! Since this is an entirely STUDENT-RUN enterprise, the theatre faculty has no decision power over which project will be chosen. The decision is in the hands of the this year’s SSAC committee.

GENERAL INFORMATION:

  • You must consult the “Guidelines for Self-Produced Student Projects” to become completely clear on the parameters of the Self Produced Projects. 

  • Anyone can propose a project – Actors, directors, dancers, choreographers, devisors, etc…
