This course is the continuation of THEA281. It presents a further investigation of the elements of directing, dealing with the production concept and the orchestration of that concept in terms of research, work with actors, ground plan, set, lights, costumes, props, and music, etc. This is an advanced directing course in performance format. Students will go through all stages of directing: selecting the script, its analysis, adaptation, set design, casting, rehearsing, lighting, and performing. Students of the class will work together with Acting II and Lighting Design students. The course culminates in the final presentation of the students' projects in the '92 Theater.
