Directing plays in schools requires knowledge and talents far different than directing for community or professional theatre. In ten comprehensive chapters the author explains the "real world" of producing effective theatricals in the school environment. He details the pitfalls and the problems while providing ideas for consistently successful shows. He covers budgeting, scheduling, faculty, politics, motivating and disciplining students and many other school-life realities beyond a director or teacher's job definition. It speaks from years of experience of a talented teacher/director who has "been there and done that." Recommended. Ten chapters: Selecting the Script, Analyzing the Script, Preparing for Production, Blocking, Casting, Rehearsal, Acting and Student Actors, Recurrent Problems, Directing the Musical, Building a Theatre Program.
