In this follow-up to Directing for the Stage, open to new directors looking for more hands on experience, students will further discover their unique approaches to directing with more in depth explorations of design and collaboration and more practical experience producing a short piece for Zoom. Gain more insight into how to actually work as a director while also preparing yourself to get hired.

What Her Students Say: “Anyone who is considering this class absolutely should. I would never have been able to take a class with Samantha, since we are on opposite sides of the states. But thanks to this online class, I started to connect and meet with like-minded students, while also learning some amazing skills.”
