THD 221 - Directing

4 credits (Fall)
In this class, students explore a variety of directing theories and practices as they develop their own distinctive directorial vision and style. Over the course of the semester, students work through the process of bringing a script from the page to the stage (dramaturgical research, directorial concept, designing, auditioning, casting, blocking, and rehearsing). The class culminates with each student directing a ten-minute one act for the college community. This course equally emphasizes process and product, stressing the importance of developing an organized approach to directing at this early stage in students’ artistic career.
