DIRECTING

 

PRODUCTIONS

This I believe:
That stories heal, they bring people together, and raise up our communities.
That live theatre is special because it is immediate. It demands space, time, and attention, and craft.
That in honoring the text and fostering a sense of play, a director's job is first and foremost to tell the story.
