Summary

The formation and communication of vision is one of the primary responsibilities of a director, before ever getting to the nuts and bolts of the process. The Art and Practice of Directing for Theatre helps the young director learn how to discover, harness, and meld the two. Providing both a practical and theoretical foundation for directors, this book explores how to craft an artistic vision for a production, and sparks inspiration in directors to put their learning into practice.

This book includes:

  • Guidance through day-to-day aspects of directing, including a director’s skillset and tools, script analysis, and rehearsal structure.
  • Advice on collaborating with production teams and actors, building communication skills and tools, and integrating digital media into these practices.
  • Discussion questions and practical worksheets covering script analysis, blocking, and planning rehearsals, with downloadable versions on a companion website.
