Dunellen Skylight Theatre Productions Seeks Directors and Play Submissions for Future Productions!

Dunellen Skylight Theatre Productions is seeking qualified applicants who are interested in directing a play and/or musical for one of our future productions.

Dunellen Skylight Theatre Productions is a non-profit organization that showcases quality theatrical presentations with a mission to entertain, inspire, educate, and advocate through the arts.  We strive to create an environment where local performers, directors, playwrights, and other artisans can display and cultivate their talents.

Directors are needed for the following:


Youth Theatre Production:

Show selection must be age appropriate for audiences ages 2 and up.

Target Dates: Two weekends (Saturday and Sunday) at the end of April (6 total performances)

Times: Saturdays, 2:00 pm and 7:30pm, Sundays 7:30pm

Where: In the past, we have used the Dunellen Presbyterian Church auditorium for these productions (rehersals and performances).  This facility has a small stage (13’ wide x 16’ deep) and seating capacity of about 75.


Musical in the Park Production:

Show selection must be appropriate to produce in a public park. This production must be a musical.  

Target Dates: Two weekends (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) at the end of August (6 total performances)

Times: 8:00pm all performances

Where: Performance takes place on our gazebo stage at Washington Memorial Park, Dunellen, NJ. Rehearsals take place downstairs at St. John’s Roman Catholic Church.

Performance space details: Theater has a stage (20-24’ wide x 20’ deep) built off a gazebo in the park and seating capacity of about 150. This is an outdoor venue with no fly space or curtain and little to no wing space.  The stage shape/configuration has some degree of flexibility.  Feel free to contact us for details.


Additionally, we at Dunellen Skylight Theatre Productions are looking to expand our season by adding a Fall/Winter performance to our schedule.  In doing so, we need your input. We are soliciting proposals for smaller scale productions that showcase both originality and creativity. Submit your ideas to us for a night of One Acts; a concert version of your favorite Broadway show; a cabaret event, or even a show that could become a holiday tradition for Dunellen Skylight Theatre Productions. We want to see what you’ve been working on!
