How we choose our seasons...
The CCTL Play Selection Committee reads a
minimum of 30 plays to find a season.
Sounds a bit crazy? But that is how seriously we take our group.
We know that our patrons want quality productions.
We strive to bring our audience productions we can be proud of.
We narrow down our selections bit by bit until we have 3-6 shows. We present the finalists to the Board of Directors for approval. If approved we have a season. If not, we go back to the drawing board and figure out another set.
The Virtual Play Selection Committee is a separate play reading committee who read the writings of playwrights from many years of submissions. These dedicated people decide which plays get a chance to be produced for our YouTube channel. Not always an easy task and still needs to be approved by the Board of Directors.
The FRPSPSC aka
"Front Range Playwright's Showcase Play Selection Committee"
is our group of extraordinaires who read new home grown writings of Colorado playwrights for the biannual Front Range Playwright's Showcase. Submissions are read in a very small window of time, are narrowed down to 3-5 plays, and are presented to the Board of Directors for final approval.
Directors for productions are chosen by the above committees under the guidance of the Artistic Director.
Persons interested in directing should read the CCTL By-Laws and contact the Artistic Director.
