ACT1 Theater is seeking directors! We have opportunities for both experienced and new directors to work with an established volunteer community theater in Alpharetta, GA. ACT1 Theater is a ministry and outreach of the Alpharetta Presbyterian Church and a partner with the City of Alpharetta.

We have not yet announced our 2021-2022 season (stay tuned for our announcement of the season on May 15).

We are seeking directors for two shows:

  • A Shakespeare play that is neither a comedy nor a tragedy that will performed outdoors in Alpharetta in October 2021.
  • A character-driven two-hander love story to be performed in the intimate Black Box Theater located in the Alpharetta Arts Center in February 2022.

Please submit your expression of interest no later than April 18, 2021 by sending an email to our Managing Director (Melody Cookson at with your resume and a cover letter not to exceed one page explaining your interest, highlights of your theater career, and telling us which show(s) interest you. If you are selected for an interview, we will communicate to you what shows have been selected and you will be asked to present your concept for each show that interests you. You will have 10-15 minutes per show.

If you are not selected to interview or direct, we may invite you to join a production team so that we can work with you on a show and get to know you better. Our production teams may consist of a Stage Manager, Production Manager, or Assistant/Associate Director depending on the needs of the show.

ACT1 Theater is a non-equity, all-volunteer, no fee (paid or collected from actors) theater with a 25+ year history of providing quality entertainment.
