The Miracle of Theatre is Coming to Richmond Hill ... learn about directing

Brandon Moore, a longtime member of The Curtain Club explains directing in community theatres as an opportunity to hone and improve a craft. As a longtime actor/director himself, he has a lot of experience, including with the Theatre Ontario Festival. The Festival, he explains is a real opportunity for theatre directors to hear objective feedback on the production a director is fortunate enough to take to the Festival from a group of objective and experienced peers. He notes that Directors face challenges too, as taking a production to a festival, which is often in a larger space than where community theatre groups typically perform, and need to work with entire design team and cast to compensate. Brandon explains that what he likes best about directing is “working with actors and designers to get the best out of them.”
