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 Bridget Kathleen O’Leary 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.

How is a written script transformed into a polished, three-dimensional theatrical experience? Join us for PAGE TO STAGE and explore every element of the production process from an insider’s perspective. Each week we will delve deeply into a different aspect of producing a New Repertory Theatre play and will attend a performance of the play studied. This class will be led by cast member and teaching artist Michael Ofori, and will feature special guests involved in New Rep’s production of CARDBOARD PIANO.

Participants will receive 1 complimentary ticket to the production and 1 discounted ticket for a guest.

STAY TUNED for more information on Spring Session II – Becoming Dr. Ruth coming in April/May! Free for Watertown Seniors, this class will be held at the Watertown Council on Aging.

In addition to the conversations we will be having in class, New Rep offers complimentary Insider Experiences to the public.  These events are meant to deepen your engagement with our productions, but also to help you get to know us a little better too.  For our productions we welcome guests to join us for the First Rehearsal which typically happens on Tuesdays in the early evenings. We also host a Sneak Peek into the rehearsal process on the last Wednesday evenings of the rehearsal process which begins at 6:30pm.
