Why are we directors? What kinds of stories do we want to tell? What skills can we add to our toolbox for working with actors and designers? Working with Rep Literary Coordinator and local freelance director Leda Hoffmann, this class will be an opportunity to develop and strengthen your directing skills from big picture design ideas to the ins and outs of working with actors.


This six-week class will focus on a contemporary play and allow each member of the class to take that play on a journey frominitial design ideas to a staged scene. In the first two weeks the class will focus on defining the world of play and design choices. The final four weeks will focus on staging and scenework. Every member of the class will have anopportunity to direct fellow classmates in a workshop scene and discuss his or her rehearsal techniques and directing choices with the instructor and the class.
