Theatre Directing - An Introduction

From finding the right play to analysing the script, developing your staging concepts to auditioning, rehearsal structure to working with actors and your creative team, this popular two-term course is designed to give both the novice and inexperienced director insight to every aspect of theatre directing, taking a play from the script to the stage.

Working with a renown director of the professional, independent and community theatre scenes, Term One will focus on the theory of each stage of a director's process. This will be followed by Term Two where students will be invited to participate in the practical elements of staging a play culminating in a showcase. Students will also be recommended and placed as Assistant Directors and Directors for Canberra's top theatre companies.
