About

The Directing program at the University of Washington School of Drama is a three year intensive, conservatory program designed to prepare students for successful entry into the professional theatre. 

Overview

Key facts

The faculty of the Professional Director Training Program seek directing students with demonstrated talent and clear potential for absorbing the skills required of a first rate theatre director. We look for students with an instinct for telling stories visually, who have a grasp of the actor's and designers' processes, who have a passion for ideas, language, visual art, music and a solid foundation in dramatic literature and theory; in short, we are looking for those who will become tomorrow's leading directors.

The Directing program at the University of Washington is based on the premise that the best training for directors is to direct under the guidance of several master teachers.

The classes and training include work in a range of types and styles of dramatic work including realistic, nonrealistic, classical and contemporary plays. The overall aim of the program is to provide students with the practical skills necessary to reveal, clearly and fully, the potential of any given text. By the time they finish their degree we expect them to be effective collaborators with actors and designers. We also strive to enable our students to expand their artistic ideas in a way that provides them with a basis for a life-long determination to fulfill and effectively reveal their artistic ideas.
