Hovey Players has been producing provocative and timely theater since 1936. Located near the historic Moody Street in Waltham, MA in the Abbott Memorial Theater, Hovey is among the most intimate performance spaces in New England. Neon lights guide the patrons downstairs and into our 50 seat blackbox; reminiscent of a 1920’s speakeasy.
Directing for Hovey
Interested in directing for our theater? We produce three-four major productions per season.
The Hovey process: Each year we invite local directors to submit scripts to the Hovey Board for consideration (deadline Dec 10). Once the board has reviewed the submissions and scripts we extend interview invitations to the directors we’ve selected as finalists.
Once the interviews have been completed, the board will then notify the chosen directors and announce our season. What is really nice about this process is directors are super passionate about the plays they submit and this typically translates beautifully on stage. Passion = energy.
A couple of things to note: We prefer smaller cast sizes (6 or fewer), but if we really love a script we won’t let the cast size be the deciding factor. To submit yourself and your script for next season, download our submission form, complete, and email the form and an electronic copy of the script to email@example.com
To submit a play suggestion for next season, download our submission form, fill it out, giving us information about yourself and the play that you’d like to direct, and email the form and an electronic copy of the script to firstname.lastname@example.org
**Note, do not fill out your information in the google doc directly, please download and fill out separately.**

All submissions are due by December 10th.
Directors are welcome to submit more than once, if they have several pieces they are passionate about bringing to life!
