Staging a successful play takes time, energy, and wisely used resources-whether the production is on Broadway or at a high school. This program shows how to select an appropriate script for a student theater group and produce the play in an organized, efficient manner. Viewers receive information on casting, planning and conducting rehearsals, and how to utilize the strengths and limitations of the performance space. The film also explores prop and costume decisions, illustrates smart publicity and marketing methods, and includes interviews with students, drama teachers, and theater professionals. Clips from student productions of various Shakespeare plays are featured.
