Do you have student directors or a student-driven production class? How do students go from "I want to direct a play" to actually putting on a successful production? The Student Director’s Handbook helps students navigate the questions and potential challenges that come with setting their ideas into motion and learning to be the one in charge.

  • How do you choose, cast, and rehearse a play so that the experience is a good one for all involved?
  • How do you circumvent the problems that can arise while directing friends?
  • How do you organize rehearsals so you have an answer when your actors look at you and say “What do we do now?”

Answer these questions and more with this easy-to-use, step-by-step guide.
