Hosted by the Churchmice Players in Camrose through Theatre Alberta’s Workshops by Request: Hometown Series program.

Saturday, April 17 & Sunday, April 18, 2021

In this hands-on workshop participants will explore the role of the director in taking a production from the page to the stage. Participants will investigate creating a director’s vision, auditioning and casting a show, and developing their own rehearsal process. No previous directing experience is required! Just show up ready to play and have fun.
