Directing

HB Studio offers both online classes and in-person classes at the Studio. Before your first class, please review the information outlined on the relevant page(s). Class titles below indicate which are running online vs. in person.

  • IN-PERSON CLASSES meet for the full 10-week term, 1 session per week.
  • ONLINE CLASSES are offered in 5-week Parts, 1 session per week. Sign up for either Part A or Part B independently (5 weeks each), or join both for the full 10-week term. You may join Part B without taking Part A.

For directors both experienced and beginning, this class, led by director Pat Golden, takes you through the director’s process.

Initial classes focus on casting; spacial relationships, composition, blocking and creating the atmosphere; script interpretation; the collaborative process between director and designer and working with the actor. In class you will experience working with these concepts in a practical manner using a scene selected from a new or existing play.
