By Jeane Luere, Sidney Berger
The group responsible for selecting a play and the style of its production must first reach a consensus on their reason for being and their rationale for approaching an audience. The goals and modes of production are constantly evolving, requiring theatre personnel to be constantly conversant with shifts in the functions of members of theatre teams, in forms and styles of drama, and in techniques of staging. This book stresses the need for collaboration and communication among the members of the theatre team during the moving of a script toward its audience. Through examples and interviews, the volume shows the importance of clearly delegated authority and responsibility of production roles, and close interaction as the members of the theatre team interpret, rehearse, and perform a play.
