Let’s make theatre! From script work to casting, from research to design, from running rehearsals to the first night, this class covers the process of directing a play. Students will explore how to listen to your imaginations and turn an initial idea into a living breathing creative experience. Including practical advice, a step by step breakdown of what to think about when, and an exploration of instinct and imagination, the week will cover how to communicate your ideas, listen to your collaborators and bring a play to life.
