Directing

For directors both experienced and beginning, this class, led by director Pat Golden, takes you through the director’s process.

Initial classes focus on casting; spacial relationships, composition, blocking and creating the atmosphere; script interpretation; the collaborative process between director and designer and working with the actor. In class you will experience working with these concepts in a practical manner using a scene selected from a new or existing play. You’ll have the opportunity to cast actors from HB’s community and student pool, and to audit acting classes at HB for the purpose of casting your scene.

These topics are explored and reinforced during the prep and rehearsal of scenes during class. Classes will include director’s prep, casting sessions, in class rehearsals, and runs of scenes.
