The Director's Playbook series, including Macbeth Director's Playbook, is designed for the high school or college teacher willing to plunge into creating a Shakespeare play on stage. The Playbook has a number of features to aid in keeping track of all the details. Budget, publicity, creating the playbill, booking theater space, auditioning the actors, tips for actors, organizing a team around the director's vision of the play (Shakespeare plays are frequently set in various time periods and/or related to current news stories). A skeleton schema of entrances and exits assures that you know who is on stage when, the costume department will need the roster, and fill in measurements if costumes were to be made from scratch, the set designer needs to know dimensions, movability, and what each scene requires. The stage manager must handle the lighting, sound, photography, curtain and shuffling sets around. The producer needs to create a budget and find the resources or set the prices accordingly. And the script itself is segmented into parts of scenes, each scene with a stage diagram to fill in the placement of sets, and each segment has a keyline for easy reference. A glossary for unfamiliar terms is provided. And a set of downloadable customized actor's scripts in large type are available free with the purchase of the Director's Playbook. The play Macbeth plunges into the depths of ambition urged on by supernatural forces —: or is it by Macbeth's own imagination? Lady Macbeth joins in the effort, with a steely disposition. Want more?
