Directing Theatre (16+) Summer School

The five-day in-person course aims to help students discover their strengths and develop their own individual directing style.

During the summer course, students will examine the role of the director, as well as look at different practitioners’ approaches to directing.

By participating in this summer school students can expect to gain a greater understanding of text analysis, stagecraft and the production process as well as examine techniques for working with actors in a rehearsal process.

This summer school is designed for theatre professionals interested in developing skills in directing for theatre. It may also be useful for anyone wishing to build on existing experience, pursue a pathway to further training or explore a career in this field.

By the end of the course, students should have:

- Been introduced to the key aspects of directing for theatre

- Gained a greater understanding of text analysis, stagecraft and the production process

- Examined techniques for working with actors in a rehearsal process

- Explored established directing styles and methodologies

Aimed at those with some experience in theatre, but little or none of directing actors, this course will provide a supportive and challenging environment in which you can explore and learn.
