Not So Common Players Call for Director Submissions for 2018 Season

Dear Director Candidate:

We are very pleased that you are interested in directing at Not So Common Players! We are a unique community theater company located in Clifton Park, NY. For 15 years, we have provided quality entertainment for local audiences in a variety of spaces and formats. NSCP is generously funded by the Town of Clifton Park which provides us with wonderful opportunities as well as unique guidelines.

Part of our mission is to provide a variety opportunities for artists and audiences. In addition to performing shows from the standard musical theater repertoire, we have staged original shows and thematic revues. These are wonderful events for all involved. Additionally, our relationship with the Town of Clifton Park provides us with funds to offer small stipends to a select number of our production team members and provide our craft free of charge to our audiences.

The flip side of this relationship is that we try very hard to provide entertainment that is suitable for all audiences. We strive to select a variety of shows while maintaining certain standards and values. Foul language, nudity and explicit sexual or violent content is avoided. Please see the list of our previously performed shows to get a better idea of what is acceptable. Before any show is presented to the Board of Directors, the script will be read by members of the show selection team. We welcome applications from directors new to Not So Common Players as well as return directors.

We have three different venues for our shows. Our summer show is always a large, well-known musical performed outdoors on the Clifton Park Common stage. Our spring and fall shows are typically smaller and may be performed either in the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Library or in one of the Shenendehowa campus theaters.

Please complete a Show Submission Form for each show you would like us to consider and attach a resume.  Submissions are due by April 15th. We may request to interview director candidates. Submissions may be e-mailed to or mailed to PO Box 296, Clifton Park, NY 12065.

Thank you for your interest!

Not So Common Players
