If you’ve ever wanted to sit in the director’s chair, then this is for you.

Gallery 7 is hosting a skill building workshop for aspiring directors this Saturday, March 12 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at MEI Theatre on Clearbrook Road.

Directing for the Stage is the theatre group’s final seminar of the 2010/2011 season and will explore the research process, text analysis, and collaborating with actors and designers.

Developing a rehearsal schedule, implementing effective rehearsal techniques and transforming ideas into reality will also be covered.

“This is a great workshop for those working in church, school and community theatre settings,” says Ken Hildebrandt, the artistic director of Gallery 7.

He adds that actors will also benefit by exploring the play-making process from a different perspective.

Dr. Lloyd Arnett will be leading the course. He’s a theatre director, producer, actor and professor at Trinity Western University.

In 20 years he has produced over 130 shows, directed 40, designed sets for 22 and written 13. His work has been seen on stages in Seattle and B.C.

The workshop is $65 per person, which includes the lessons, a snack, water and a light lunch.
