From the initial idea, through the tense days of rehearsal, to the final performance of the first production, it covers all aspects of youth theater management, production, and direction. 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.
