Page to Stage

Go even deeper into the world of the play with PAGE TO STAGE! Over five sessions, participants will learn about all aspects of theatrical producing, including story approach, the collaborative design process, character development between actor and director, incorporation of technical elements, and effectively connecting with audiences.

With Adrienne Boris and other New Rep teaching artists, including Artistic Director Jim Petosa, participants will expand their understanding of the artistry involved in each element of the creative process, leading up to a successful opening night.
