Season Policies

The Seneca Community Players Board of Directors would like to take the time to thank you for your interest in working with our group and to explain some of our season and production policies.

Proposal Timelines/Deadlines

In order for us to plan our next season, we have set new deadlines for accepting proposals. For any show that is proposed to run between January and June, a proposal must be turned in to the Board of Directors no later than September 30th of the previous year.

For any show that is proposed to run between July and December, a proposal must be submitted no later than October 31st of the previous year.  In the event that there are still openings for the first half of the year, proposals for shows to run between January and June will also be accepted at the October deadline.

Shows will be voted upon at the October and November board meetings (2nd Thursday of each month) with a full season announcement to take place sometime in late November or early December.

Directors will be informed immediately after the board has voted at the above meeting times. Any change to your proposal that will affect budget, dates, venue or production personnel need to be brought to the attention of a member of the board of directors.

Producers’ Meeting

When our season has been voted upon, we will coordinate a meeting time with the producer of each show to discuss season publicity, season tickets, fundraising, and season programs.

Season programs will have a uniform format for a SCP season insert which will contain membership lists, sponsors and any other board information. This will remove the responsibility of including this in your program, as it will be a ready-made insert.

Season Fundraising is a focus for our group this year. Your cast and staff are expected to participate in fundraising and outreach events. These fundraising and outreach events make our shows possible.

Season tickets will also be discussed. It is our aim to have subscription sales ready for the holiday gift season, and publicized for sales to continue throughout the year.
