Make as many contracts in the theatrical industry as possible. You cannot audition to be a stage director; networking is the key in this field.
When you land jobs, do your best to make a good impression on your coworkers. The theater world is small and a good reputation will follow you everywhere.
Volunteer to work in your local community theater as an assistant to the director if possible. If not, work in the theater in any capacity.
Look for an internship working in theater by contacting schools, colleges, art councils, theater groups, organizations, and associations. Once you get an internship, do more than you are asked to and learn as much as possible.
Many summer theaters offer part-time or summer jobs to students learning their craft. Send your resume with a short cover letter asking for an interview.
