Overview

For new and veteran play directors, here is a comprehensive, practical guide to producing student theater packed with tested tips, timesavers and problem-solvers. Step by step, the kit takes you through every phase of play selection and production including getting started, pre-production activity, how to get the most out of rehearsals, how to direct a musical, and how to publicize and promote your production. The kit also provides directories of acting/directing terms, a list of contemporary plays and a selected reading list for beginning directors. Each of the six sections is complete with ready-to-use checklists, diagrams and samples. Included are over 55 full-page checklists, diagrams, forms, fact sheets, samples and other aids you can use as is or easily adapt to your particular needs. And all material is printed in a handy 8 1/4" x 11" format for easy photocopying. As an added enhancement, each section carries a subtitle that's also a song title from a musical and includes interesting facts about its Broadway opening, original cast, and number of performances. Whether you're directing a first play or your 25th, at the planning stage or in the midst of the production process, you'll find Play Director's Survival Kit invaluable.
