Costume Designer for The Ghostlight Stage Company's One Act Double Feature - low time commitment & no construction required!! (see more info on plays below).

Rehearsal Space: 601 Madison Ave, Covington, KY 41011 / designers can attend via Zoom
Contract: Nonunion

Pay Rate: $300 stipend (for approx. 10 hours of rehearsal/tech/performance time + however much time is needed outside of rehearsal for design preparation). Additional compensation will be given for any materials needed for a lobby display of designs.

 

Production: One Act Double Feature of New Works: The Locked Door by Dedrick Weathersby and Synapse by Mary Beringer

 

Directors: Synapse - Aiden Dalton and The Locked Door - A.J. Baldwin

 

About the Event: This event is unique in that it will be a hybrid between a typical staged reading format and a full production. The audience will get a look “behind the curtain” as we show them what would happen on a typical first day of rehearsal for a professional theater show (only a bit more jazzed up for entertainment purposes). Audiences will get to see 2 brand new plays in staged reading format with light staging and costuming, where actors perform with script in hand. In addition to hearing these new stories, audiences will get to see visions for a full production in the form of set and costume designs. We hope to excite the audience about new work and have them wanting more. The Ghostlight’s future plans involve fully producing at least one of these plays in our season of shows next year with the same design visions shown in this event.
 

To Submit: Please email with the subject line, “DESIGNER SUBMISSION.” In your email please attach a relevant resume of experience, a one page cover letter describing what interests you about these new works and being a part of this event, and any other artistic supporting materials (such as website, full portfolio of work, etc). Send these submissions to The Ghostlight Stage Company’s Theatrical Director, Aiden Dalton at: aiden@theghostlightstageco.com 
 

Production Schedule

1st Rehearsal: October 8, 2023

Opens/Closes: October 14, 2023

 

There will be 3 rehearsals for each piece that run approximately 6:30pm-10:30pm EST between October 8-13. Then a tech & performance day on October 14 for 8 hours. Designers will do most of their work outside of rehearsal time, putting together their artistic pitches, but will be required to attend a few specific dates. Designers will be required to attend at least one rehearsal for each piece for 1 hour or less, to share their designs with the teams (preferred attendance would be on the first dates of rehearsal, but this can be flexible). This attendance for initial rehearsals could be via zoom if designer is not available to come in person. Designers will also be required to attend the full 8 hour tech & opening night on October 14 to help with set up of the displays of their designs in the lobby for audiences to view and to help take down afterwards. Example: Costume Designer would have sketches and possibly sample materials for costumes to display in the lobby, along with a brief written description for audiences to read.

If a designer isn't available for the full 8 hour day on Oct. 14 but would still like to apply, please reach out with hours you are available. With a slightly reduced stipend, we may still consider you. Please reach out!

The Locked Door by Dedrick Weathersby

In 1995 Minister Louis Farrakhan and Benjamin F. Chavis Jr. assembled one of the largest gatherings of African American men of its time, that would later be called the Million March. Two African American men find themselves desperately needing a place to stay for the march. The only room available is a single dormitory room for two. Albeit different, the two men compromise and settle for the room. Although the men begin their stay as strangers, their shared stories and experiences unite them as their discourse builds a portrait of what it means to be Black in America.

2 character play.

Synapse by Mary Beringer

When Mrs. Brown's husband disappears, she gets an offer from his employer- a technology company that can put Mr. Brown's brain into the body of a willing participant, essentially bringing him back to life. Mrs. Brown agrees, but she may come to regret that decision.

 

4 character play.
