Taught by Milwaukee Rep director Leda Hoffmann (The Amish Project), this course will offer students a chance to develop and strengthen a variety of skills essential for any director’s toolbox. Focusing on a contemporary play, each member of the class will embark on a theatrical journey as a student director, taking their piece from big-picture ideas to a staged scene. The first two weeks will focus on defining the world of the play and design choices. The final four weeks will focus on staging and scene work. Every member of the class will have an opportunity to direct fellow classmates in a workshop scene and discuss rehearsal techniques and directing choices with the instructor and class.
