Theatre Directing/Creation Class

taught by Raymond Bobgan, CPT Executive Artistic Director

Theatre Directing/Creation Class is for theatre directors, writers, actors, designers, and composers who wish to explore the rigors of directing and creating original performances. In this class everyone will direct, act, and create. Participants may also be paired to collaborate on some assignments. The class will not follow a conventional curriculum and will evolve throughout the process. The class will include the creation of 3-4 scene assignments in order for participants to explore class topics and develop new work. Deadline for application is May 21, 2018.
