Break a Leg!
An introductory guide to stage directing

By Adrea Gibbs


Cover of
How do you stage a successful play?  Where does it all begin?  Who does what?  On this DVD, Adrea Gibbs explains the role of everyone in a production:  the director, the stage manager, the music director, the choreographer, the lighting designer, the sound designer, the set designer, and the costume designer.  Gibbs also elaborates on almost all the aspects involved in a show from auditions to opening night:  the best way to conduct auditions and how to do the final casting; how to decide the main thrust of the play, which will affect the work of everyone on the staff; the basics of stage sets and blocking; how to direct the actor to create a believable character; scheduling rehearsals; and being ready in every way for opening night.  This DVD starts at the most basic level and helps individuals new to theatre quickly get up to speed with their vocabulary and understanding of where they fit into the entire production process.

(DVD, approx.  40 minutes; 30 page workbook)
