The Drama League Names Fellows for '10-'11 Director's Project
Musical Theatre Fellowship
This summer, the Directors Project is pleased to announce the beginning of its newest program. One participant (Directing Fellow Nick Potenzieri) will be sent to Barrington Stage Company in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, where he will assist on the development of two new shows in the Musical Theatre Lab run by composer William Finn.
New Directors/New Works
This program supports the development of exciting new projects from talented young directors and their collaborators. The Directors Project adjudication panel is currently evaluating submissions and in June will select additional projects for development.
The goals of the Directors Project are:
• To enhance young directors' artistic growth, broaden their knowledge and hone their skills by providing opportunities to work with and learn from leading directors, playwrights, actors and designers around the country.
• To provide opportunities for young directors to present their work and for the professional community to view and assess that work.
• To augment the network of professionals to whom new directors can turn for counsel, support, and employment.
• To accelerate the process through which new directors gain acceptance within the professional community, bringing their unique skills and vision into the working life of the American theatre.
