Welcome to the Falmouth Theatre Guild!  FTG is one of the most exciting and successful theaters on Cape Cod with a long tradition of high quality productions of both musicals and plays.  We are excited to have you offer your talents and time to community theater.


The information below provides basic instructions and forms for proposing a show to direct here at FTG.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Joan Baird, Chairman of Play Reading Committee at We look forward to your submission, and thank you for supporting FTG.




Location of Rehearsals and Performances:

Most of our rehearsals take place at Highfield Theater although, sometimes it may be necessary to find an alternate place to rehearse.  All our productions are at Highfield Theater.

Rehearsal Guidelines:

FTG productions typically rehearse 2-3 days per week (with the exception of Tech Week) staring about 10 weeks prior to opening. Directors are requested to develop a rehearsal schedule for their production upon casting the show.

Script & Royalty Guidelines:

The Play Reading Chairman and the Board of Directors will be responsible for obtaining production rights (royalties and rental).

Budget Requirements:

The production proposal form requires directors to submit an estimated budget.  We recognize that writing a budget can be difficult at this early stage of the process.  If you require assistance in determining budget information please contact Play Reading Chairman and help will be provided.   The producer/producers of each show will work with the director to determine a final budget prior to the beginning of rehearsals.  Access the budget template HERE, and email the completed form to the Play Reading Committee Chair, Joan Baird (

Production Team Guidelines:

The production proposal form requires directors to propose a tentative production staff.  While we realize that some directors may be new and don’t have the resources to fill a production staff, FTG Board Members may be able to help make suggestions.  If your proposed team members have never worked with FTG, please provide a short description of their experience in each specific production role.  Also, if you are a new director to FTG, please provide us with a resume.

Timing of the Production Selection Process:

Submissions were due no later than November 30th, 2017 for the 2018-2019 season.   Once all the submissions are received, the Play Reading Committee will go through all submissions and be sure they are complete.  Any questions on a submission will be addressed by the Play Reading Chairman before submitting proposals to the FTG Board of Directors.  At that time, individual appointments with Directors will be set up by Play Reading Chairman to present their proposal to the FTG Board of Directors.   Final selections will be announced in our 2018 Spring Show Program.
