Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation Accepting Applications for Observership Program

Stage Directors and Choreographers Foundation Accepting Applications for Observership Program


Since 1965, the Stage Directors and Choreographers Workshop Foundation has fostered, promoted, and developed the creativity and craft of stage directors and choreographers. SDC provides opportunities to practice the crafts of directing and choreography; gathers and disseminates craft and career information; promotes the profession to emerging talent; provides opportunities for exchange of knowledge among directors and choreographers; increases the awareness of the value of directors’ and choreographers’ work; and convenes around issues affecting theater artists.

To that end, the foundation currently is accepting applications for its Observership Program. The program provides early- to mid-career directors and choreographers paid opportunities to observe the work of master directors and choreographers as they create productions on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and at leading regional theaters across the country. SDCF Observers may have access to the entire rehearsal process, from first rehearsal through opening night, and will observe first-hand the techniques, disciplines, approaches, and insights of master artists as they create new productions and revive classics.

Observers receive a weekly stipend of $300 as well as a travel stipend of up to $500. In addition, any Observer not already a member of SDC will be awarded a free, one-year SDC associate membership upon program completion.

See the Stage Directors and Choreographers Workshop Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
