Directing plays in schools is far different than directing for community or professional theatre. This invaluable text effectively details and explains the world of producing plays in the school environment. In ten comprehensive chapters we are provided 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, 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.

About the Author:

Since he organized his own theater company in Wichita Falls, Texas, at age eighteen, David Grote has directed more than 150 productions. He headed an independent student company at the University of Texas and later taught and directed theater programs in high schools in Bakersfield, California before moving to Scripps College in Claremont, California.
Since the mid-eighties, Grote has been a freelance director based in San Francisco, but he has continued to work regularly with high school and college student actors in workshops, summer programs, and as a guest artist. He is the artistic director of the Classic Theater Project in San Francisco and has been a regular artist-in-residence at the San Francisco School of the Arts. He is the author of many books and critical studies dealing with a wide variety of subjects concerning theater production. Eleven of his plays have been produced. Grote also has seven one-act published plays which are used in high school competitions nationwide.
