CDRAM 2080 Art & Craft of Directing & Stage Management

Geared to students who enjoy theater and would like to delve more deeply 'behind the scenes,' this course explores the art and craft of directing and stage management. By studying the philosophy, strategies, and technical concepts of both directing and stage managing, students will gain an understanding of the creativity, discipline, and skills required for these two professional roles. Regular reading, writing, and group assignments will allow students to combine theory with practice as they direct and stage manage scenes from various plays. Students will gain a deeper appreciation of the ways in which theater artists work - and how they work together - to make a play come alive onstage.
