LEARN THE CRAFT OF THEATRE DIRECTING
PLEASE NOTE: The details for the upcoming Director's Toolbox Program will be announced by September 15, 2018. Check back.
Movies will make you famous; television will make you rich; but theatre will make you good. -Terrence Mann (Broadway actor and director)
Whether you're a novice or emerging director, having more tools and gaining a deeper understanding in the craft of theatre directing will better equip you in leading a cast. Surprisingly, many directors are not prepared enough -- simply because there aren't that many training opportunities for them.
Theatre inspiraTO, the producers of the inspiraTO Festival, is excited to present its theatre directing initative: The Director's Toolbox Program. The Director’s Toolbox aims to provide mentorship and training to new and emerging artists to develop as directors through critically and creatively engaging with a short theatrical production.
