PERF 400: Advanced Performing Arts Studio
Spring 2017 Production Proposal Form
Every spring semester the WKU Department of Theatre and Dance produces a number of student
directed productions. If you would like to propose a production for this series, you need to
complete and submit a digital copy of the attached Production Proposal Forms to Professor
Stroot by the announced deadline. (Forms should also be available on the Theatre and Dance
Department web site.)
Proposal deadline for the Spring 2017 Series
12 Noon Friday November 11
Eligibility Requirements:
 You must be a Theatre & Dance Department major or minor in good standing.
 Proposing Directors must have successfully completed THEA 371: Directing I with a
grade of C or better.
In addition to these basic eligibility criteria, the following will also considered
when making decisions about which proposals will be given the green light:
 Artistic vision: strength of proposed production concept.
 Do-ability: realistic alignment between proposed production concept and available
departmental production support resources. The underlying assumption here is that well
written, small cast, technically simple productions are much more likely to achieve
high quality production values, and will be given priority consideration.
Proposals must be complete, thoughtful and carefully prepared to be considered.
Carelessly prepared and/or incomplete proposals will be returned without consideration.
