T H E D I R E C T O R S' L A B is a dynamic new program for first-time directors that covers the art and practice of directing in a community theatre setting. This combination directing class and hands-on workshop allow a small group of emerging directors the opportunity to develop skills in the areas of leadership, design, composition, research, communication, auditions, budgeting, marketing, and more.
Participants will spend the first half of the program in a series of discussions and exercises. In the second half of the program, participants will apply their skills as they direct and manage an RLT Mainstage production; each participant, with the guidance of Chris Davidson, will direct a scene from Almost, Maine, and will be involved in all aspects of the production.
Admission to the Directors’ Lab is by application and is limited to eight participants.
