Director

The director is responsible for determining the overall artistic direction of the production. Their role includes developing the concept for the show; working with the music director and choreographer to create the show’s atmosphere and storytelling arc; working with the lighting, sound and set design teams to bring the show’s setting to life; and overseeing the development of the entire show – balancing acting, music, sound, lighting, costumes, makeup and set design. The director is also responsible for managing the cast, including giving the actors directions in ‘stage presence’ and blocking scenes with them.
