Directing for New Directors (IATAD-199)
Directing for New Directors is a course specifically geared for students new to the art of directing. It is designed as an introduction to the director's functions and the resources available for translating scripted material into a theatrical performance. Active participation in class exercises and projects will provide practical instruction on how to mount a successful production. Topics will include play selection; casting; play analysis and identification of dramatic action; blocking; creating visual and aural aesthetics through set, costume, lighting, and sound design; vocal and physical warm-ups for actors; enlisting the support of fellow theatre artists volunteers; developing a working prompt book; and marketing a production.
