Call for Proposals

To All Directors:

Bard in the Valley (BIV) is inviting directors to submit proposals to direct a Shakespearean play for BIV’s 2019 season – the tenth season. If you are a director and you have a passion for a particular Shakespearean play, we would like to hear from you. We would also entertain the idea of producing a play by a Shakespearean contemporary.


Auditions for actors will be held in March 2019, we rehearse twice a week from the beginning of April, and have 16 performances from approximately June 29 to July 31 (11 of which are admission-free). The rehearsal dates are based on the availability of the City of Langley’s facility but have historically been on Sunday afternoons and Monday evenings.

Please submit your proposal before June 1.

You will be invited to present your proposal to the Bard in the Valley board on Saturday, July 21. The BIV board will announce the 2019 play and director in July at the final performances of our 2018 play, Romeo and Juliet.

We plan to continue producing Shakespearean and other classic plays for many years so, if your play is not selected for 2019 we’ll keep your proposal in mind for subsequent years.

Bard in the Valley gives the director a small honorarium of $500.

Thank you
