ASSOCIATE DIRECTOR FOR 'PHILLY' AT THE PHIPPS

The Phipps Center for the Arts in association with Philly Developmental LLC is seeking an associate director for their production of Philly, scheduled for nine performances September 18 - October 4, 2020, directed by Rebecca Rizzio.

Responsibilities and expectations include:  working with the production team (writer, director, and choreographers) in the pre-production planning process to develop a deep understanding of the show, its vision, and production strategy; working with the director to collaborate and execute the vision for the show, including blocking, character development, and scene refinement; and attending all rehearsals and production meetings.  Rehearsals will begin around July 25.  A stipend will be provided by Philly Developmental LLC.

Philly is an original musical based on a true story.  Set in 1979, Johnny is a bright, undaunted songwriter who meets a charismatic hairdresser with an amazing voice.  As the band struggles to make it, the decision to accept financial help from a karma-believing mobster complicates things.  The original music is classic rock meets traditional Broadway in this fun-filled, energizing show.

If interested, please send your resume or direct any questions to Rebecca Rizzio, [email protected], by May 15.

Of course, this production is dependent on government directives regarding COVID-19.
