Become a Director

The work of the Director is central to the production of a play, setting the vision for the production for everyone involved bringing together the many pieces of a production—the script, actors, set, costuming, lighting and sound and music—into a unified whole. The Director’s work is most often based on a detailed study and analysis of the script to be produced.
