Pub. Date:
Taking the reader through the production of a play step by step, from setting up a drama group to opening night and through an entire run, this book can be read straight through or consulted as a handy reference. All aspects of starting a drama group are explored, including financing, organizing, attracting members, choosing a director, choosing plays, auditions, casting, stage management, lighting, sound, costumes, props, set design, advertising, first nights, and last nights. Additional sections deal with special concerns and interests such as producing plays in the open air, school productions, producing plays with non-English speakers, expatriate productions, plays without scripts, and producing Shakespeare and Brecht. Other helpful features include sample rehearsal schedules, sample plans for blocking scenes, and excerpts and quotes from leading drama practitioners.
