The Director’s Process – Fundamentals of Directing for the Stage

The Director’s Process – Fundamentals of Directing for the Stage is a series of six (6) sequential skill-based workshop sessions to teach the fundamentals of directing for the stage. Participating directors work with actors and learn techniques on how to communicate with actors and evoke natural, spontaneous performances.  Directors focus on detailed scene work as well as the practical and technical aspects of directing. The series will culminate in a presentation of monologues and ten-minute plays directed by workshop students; this presentation will be open to the public at no charge. Previous training in directing is not required.

This workshop series fulfills County Players’ mission “To delight, educate, and challenge the community and to nurture creative expression, through theatre and the performing arts of the highest quality.”
