The 5 & Dime began when a group of artists and friends came together with a common goal: to make a change in the Jacksonville cultural arts community. From this, The 5 & Dime, a theatre company, was born. It started with a simple question, “Why not us?” And so we offer this: why not YOU?

Introducing our “Director’s Season!” As we begin to plan our 2018 season, we’re looking to you to help us.  Do you have a show that is on your dream list to direct? Is there a story to be told that you are passionate about?  Then now is your chance!  For our 2018 season, we are searching for directors to pitch their dream show.  Simply fill out the form below with as much detail as possible. Our committee will review all applications and select the most promising for an in-person interview.

Things to think about to ensure that your pitch makes the list: Could this show work within The 5 & Dime’s space? Do I have solutions for all the technical elements?  How large is the cast?  (A larger cast might be preventative.)  And most importantly, why is this a good story to tell?

Submissions are due by June 12th at midnight. Please limit yourself to no more than 2 submissions. Applicant is required to provide the script by email, mail or by dropping off at The 5 & Dime (112 East Adams Street). For any further questions, please contact Lee Hamby at
