In this three term course students will have the opportunity to be the ultimate storyteller reading, analyzing, and choosing plays and play excerpts to bring to life for the stage. Theatre is a collaborative art form and the director is the ultimate channel for the creative flow. Our young directors will experience all aspects of mounting a production: the audition process, casting their play, creating their directors book, including director concept, set design, costumes, sound, and lighting. In the fall we will explore the text of the pieces they choose focusing on, meaning, intention and movement (blocking) that supports the story and acting. In the winter and spring term students will choose a short one act they will present as a final project at the end of the spring term. Directors will be responsible for all aspects of their production, including, scheduling, casting, communicating with their actors, sound, lighting, blocking, costumes and communicating with their technical crew. The final show case will be presented in a professional theatre. Students who take this class are expected to be at all rehearsals including and especially production week rehearsals and put in time outside of class doing homework and possibly doing pick up rehearsals with classmates to prepare for class.
