The Theatre Company of Saugus is seeking to engage the artistic staff for our upcoming season of shows in 2015-2016. We need a Director for each show, and a Musical Director and a Choreographer for each musical. Candidates should send a letter of interest indicating which shows you are interested in, along with a resume, to TCSaugus@gmail.com. The deadline is April 15, 2015. We will ask all candidates to answer a questionnaire, and to come to an interview during April-May 2015.
Here is the season of shows, with probable performance dates:

The alternates for The Mystery of Edwin Drood are Batboy or Little Shop of Horrors; both are musical thrillers.
The alternates for Nunsense: The Mega Musical are The Greatest Christmas Pageant Ever, a comedy play with adults and children, or return engagements of our popular musical revues A Very Christmas Christmas, or of A Storybook Christmas.
The alternate for The Laramie Project is God of Carnage, another serious drama.
The alternate for Urinetown is 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, a musical comedy.
