The Whangamata Theatre Society presents: Approaches to Directing Theatre Workshop with Massive Company's Artistic Director Sam Scott, on the weekend of May 15th and 16th 2010.

This 2 day weekend workshop will focus on the fundamentals of directing theatre. Sam Scott, Artistic Director and Founder of Massive Company ( will be sharing some of her approaches to working with actors in rehearsal and what she perceives the role of director encompasses.

This 2 day workshop will encompass some discussion of process but most of the work will be in the participants getting a chance to direct and/or be directed using chosen script. Sam will also give insight into her warm ups for actors and what her philosophy on acting is.

Don't miss the opportunity to be a part of this exciting workshop - a real treat for us on the Coromandel - and the first of many the Whangamata Theatre Society are planning to host. The workshop is limited to twenty participants.

Price per person: $180 incl GST for the weekend. The price includes full catering.
Accommodation: As it is being hosted in the Marae classroom we can offer you a sleep over for $30 koha per night.
