1-Year Directing Program

The One Year Directing Program is taught by co-artistic directors Seth Barrish and Lee Brock, and is a comprehensive approach to directing, divided into three sessions:

The year begins with an introduction to the Barrow Group approach, in depth script analysis, audition technique, and scene work with actors to focus on communication between actor and director to evoke natural, spontaneous performances. A full play will be selected by the instructor as material for the fall session.

In this session, students will select their own scenes to work on;  script analysis, design approach, and tools.

Directors will select one-act plays to work on in class. The program culminates with performances in the TBG Studio Theatre.

*The program culminates with each director receiving a night in our studio theatre to present a reading. These readings will occur in May, June, and July.

*Throughout the year, professional designers (scenic, costume, lighting, sound) and stage managers, producers will discuss their areas of expertise and discuss communication between director and designer.
