Teacher Nate Herman
Supervisor Matt Hovde
Class --
Term Chicago Term 5 2013

Description
This class has been cancelled.

A good tight running order can make up for a lot of problems your scenes themselves might have. Conversely, a bad running order can harm terrific scenes and ultimately sink a show. Many shows with good material held together with a lousy running order wound up harming the show as a whole.

When Nate Herman was directing shows in the ETC and Mainstage theaters, they incorporated the "concept album" notion, which is gluing a show together with a central theme. Some shows that attempted to do the same have failed because the "theme" is either not relevant to the material or not adhered to.

In this workshop, students should bring in written pieces (sketches, blackouts, songs) that they consider show-worthy. The class will work on understanding the "concept album" premise, finding the through-line (the theme) for the show, and crafting a cohesive running order around it.

This workshop will prove effective in helping Second City directors and future directors hone their craft and create tighter, more professional-looking shows.

Prerequisites: Conservatory Level 4, Writing 4, or current/former Directing Program students (not intro classes)


What you need to bring: Please bring with you to the workshop a group of student written sketches (group; 1-2 people; solo), blackouts, and if possible songs (or song fragments) that you've gathered from friends in the Writing Program. Try for a variety; don't bring in everything from just one or two people. If necessary, put up a note or send out an email requesting material. You should have at least 10 pieces. Also, bring in your favorite CD (MP3), current or vintage.
