• NAB: Getting Started in Directing 01/12/2018  11:46am

    I am interested in directing as well as performing. Any advice on how to get started? I have only one AD and one MD credit on my resume. I'm applying for some summer internships but it seems like a long shot since I'm so inexperienced. Thanks so much!

    Hey there. So this is a path I have been dabbling in getting set up over the years. And honestly, the best thing you can do, if you can make it work, is ask directors you have a good relationship with if you can assist them. Or if you are cast by someone you know, ask if you can assist them as well. Usually its for no money. Or a small stipend. But, I have one director I have been assisting a ton over the years. She just passed a job my way cause she turned it down. I couldn't take it either unfortunately. But, it will happen again. And now that theatre has my name as well. I have also been thinking about applying to the small festivals here in the city to flush out that side of my resume with more stuff. Cause its all assistant stuff at this point.

    What about the DI program at Williamstown? I was there two summers and most of the DI's are pretty green.
