Topics include creating a company and choosing a venue; working together, including building a team and improving technical standards; choosing suitable material and assessing scripts; pre-rehearsal planning, preparation, and casting; design, lighting, sound, costumes, and props; conducting technical and dress rehearsals; and surviving the first night as well as the run of the play.
