TheatrePEI’s Introduction to Directing Workshop
This six week workshop is for people who are or will be directing in a play.
The principle concept we will be discussing is collaboration. Once the director can find the words to communicate what s/he wants in language that stimulates designers, actors, stage managers and producers, the idea directs the thoughts and dreams of everyone involved. Everyone has a talent - it is a matter of finding it and releasing it. This search and release is the job of the director. This workshop will lead you to find the words to express your ideas and activate the talents and energies of the many collaborators in the community required to create a successful play. Starting with how we choose a play, through casting, design and acting rehearsals, this workshop covers each of the collaboration a director must undertake in the rehearsal process.
