March Madness: Direction Do's and Don'ts

March Madness 2016 is coming up soon, and the directors from last year's event have come together to tell you and any potential directors the best advice they have for handling this crazy one week theatre event.

I interviewed Stefan Verveniotis, Evan Jones, and Michael Davenport, and included my own comments, asking them "What do you think your most important lesson or most helpful tip for next season's directors is?" The following are our responses.

LAST CHANCE To Submit Your Team For March Madness 2016

This is your last chance to get involved as a Director, Stage Manager or other production team member in this year's March Madness!!

Have you ever wanted to try your hand at putting on a play?

Are you an experienced director or stage manager who'd like to run a show but can't commit to weeks of preparation time?

Are you just looking for something fun to do for a week in March?

If the answer to ANY of these questions is "yes", then March Madness is what you've been waiting for!

Off Book: A Look At Jesse Shell's "Art of Game Design"

Today I want to look at Jesse Shell’s book The Art of Game Design. Games are my second passion outside the theatre, and the shared capacity for audience engagement has lead me to find some very interesting skills that can be transported to the stage.

Shell’s book uses a series of perspectives he calls lenses to analyze his work. Today, I want to share with you three of them, and consider how they can be applied to theatre.
