Essentials of Directing
A CWP Theatre Education Workshop

Saturday, December 12, 2020
10 am – 12 pm
at Carrollwood Players Theatre

Instructor: Marc S. Sanders

Join us for an informative session that will discuss the fundamentals of directing from handling challenging actors, working within the limits of a performance venue, building a rehearsal schedule and boosting confidence in a dependable cast and crew.

Strategies and approach to preparation for a rehearsal schedule will be explored from your first production meeting to the audition process to blocking your scenes, rerunning your scenes with your cast, stage manager and crew, up to tech week and finally performance.

This promises to be a comprehensive session to build confidence and minimize the stress that comes with being a director, coach and leader of a stage production.
