Written specifically for the middle school or high school drama director, this book is about how one person can run a successful extracurricular drama program, from administrative detail and play selection to the actual performance before an audience. This is not intended as a manual or a comprehensive study of stagecraft but rather as a collection of suggestions and vignettes of personal experience.

    This book is incredibly informative and a must have for new theatre teachers. Johnson goes into depth on the entire production process and gives you every tool you need to put on a production. I will say there are a few outdated ideas when it comes to publicity (no social media) and acting techniques (one particularly about encouraging actors to pretend they are people in a mental hospital) but if you put aside those things, you have an incredible resource on your hands.

It’s incredibly easy to read and has wonderful pictures, worksheets that can be copied, and timelines to help you succeed. I loved it!

    I found this book to be very helpful as a first time director.

    Helpful and informative, though I did not enjoy the quasi-conversational writing style or the visual layout of the book. It seemed to be reaching for the feel of an annotated notebook and a conversation over coffee, which I found distracting. However, the reproducibles in this book seem useful.
