Bestor, Sheri
Teacher Ideas Press
Divided into two parts, the Director's Handbook and the Actor's Handbook, On With the Show! enables directors and actors to get the most out of rehearsal time at home and on the stage. Providing essential time-saving techniques, worksheets, and samples, this guide allows performers and directors to work more effectively and efficiently toward the final production, strengthening their skills as directors while building confidence in their actors onstage. This resource for drama teachers, classroom teachers, and community-theatre leaders allows all to enjoy the thrilling process of putting on a play or musical by providing the tools for cast members to reach their performance goals, and helping directors to be as organized as possible. Part I, The Director's Handbook, contains the first four chapters: (1) Auditions--The Director; (2) Directors--Getting the Most Out of Rehearsals; (3) Coming to Rehearsals Prepared--The Student Handbook; and (4) Reproducibles for Directors. Part II, The Actor's Handbook, contains the final four chapters: (5) Auditions and Rehearsals, (6) Actors--Getting the Most Out of Rehearsals; (7) Home Rehearsals; and (8) The Aftermath.
