Directing for Community Theatre

Webinar Series with Candy Pryce


Our first webinar series, “Directing for Community Theatre,” wrapped up in February and was an amazing success.

“I really enjoyed my first foray into on-line instruction,” says presenter Candy Pryce. “It was great to take advantage of this time of pause in theatre to reflect on my experiences and share what might be helpful to others and increase the pool of potential directors for community theatre! Though virtual communication can feel constricting for us theatre folk, it also allows for greater participation since geography is not an issue and time is less of one – I enjoyed meeting new colleagues and the exchange of ideas that ensued. These chances to connect are a great way to keep our creative juices flowing so that we come out of this difficult time better prepared to move ahead with new skills, ideas and personal connections.”

Thank you to all those who participated and be sure to stay tuned for our next online education opportunity!
