PAST EVENT From Page to Stage

PAST EVENT From Stage to Page
with award-winning
stage director Bryn Boice Thursday, MARCH 24, 4 PM

Live theatre begins when a playwright has an idea for a plot. But when the script is completed, a director, actors and a team of technicians set out to bring the story
to life.How does a director stay true to the playwright’s intent? How do the actors’ choices tell the story? Does a play really need lights, sets and costumes? Stage director Bryn Boice will help us understand how a story on a page becomes a live stage production.
