Whether you are new to directing, or have several shows under your belt, this workshop is for you! Vanessa will lead participants through the first stages of creating a vision for your production. Starting by reading and dreaming to explore what Vanessa calls the stage metaphor (roughly: the world of your presentation of the play), she will lead participants though exercises to hone in on this stage metaphor, followed by how to bring it alive — creating the physical action.

Participants are asked to read Mary’s Wedding by Stephen Massicotte before attending — please contact the office to arrange.

This workshop is intended for ages 16+
