Once the deadline has been reached, invitations will be sent to the prospective directors who have submitted applications to be interviewed. Interviews will take place on Thursday and Saturday, December 7 and 9, 2022. 

Further information will be made available at our website at www.iowacitycommunitytheatre.org.  Additionally, if prospective directors need more information, they can contact the PDS Committee by email at pds@iowacitycommunitytheatre.com. We look forward to hearing from many of you, and to working with you on your shows!
