All other Direct Thyself classes have led to this, the definitive challenge in the Direct Thyself saga. (dun, dun, duuuunnnn….) This six-week course will be taught by you, the students. Not quite a Lord of The Flies mutiny, but each week students will decide the curriculum for the entire class, whether it’s an audition exercise with the same copy for everyone or specific copy suited to each individual. Not only will you select copy, but you will be responsible for bringing your fellow students to a competitive read through your clear and succinct direction. Each class will end with Samantha not only critiquing the in-class performances, but she will also break down your acumen as a director. Samantha has always said that teaching and directing other actors drove her skills as a performer to a level she would have never reached by acting alone. Here’s your chance to have that scary yet exhilarating experience for “thyself”.
