a coming of age story about gender and battle bots; 

an intergalactic romp filled with love, math and dance breaks; 

a drama about the members of a close-knit community in the aftermath of an assault; 

an ethereal journey through years and memories on the shore of a beach; 

a developmental process of a play about privilege and the ways it connects or divides us.

We want you to help us bring these stories to life.

Thank you for your interest in directing with Campfire Theatre Festival! We are on the hunt for five talented directors to direct our four staged readings and one Spark program developmental workshop.
