About the Book:

Directing plays in schools is far different than directing for professional theatre.

Subtitled A Drama Director's Survival Guide, this invaluable text effectively details and explains the world of producing plays in the school environment. In ten comprehensive chapters the author of this theatre text explains the "real world" of producing effective theatricals (including musicals) in the school environment. Play Directing in the School provides you with ideas for consistently successful shows, while avoiding the pitfalls and the problems that often block the way. From the selecting of the script to casting to rehearsals to building your theatre program, David Grote supplies the key to opening the curtain to successful productions. Whether it's budgeting, scheduling, or the motivating and management of students, this is a must for anyone directing in an educational institution.
