You HAVE To Put On A SCHOOL SHOW?!?, falls under my whole mission to-help-others-grow-through-the-arts umbrella. Allow me to declare that I do not consider myself a writer however, I am well-equipped to share my knowledge with those who are tasked with the overwhelming mission to lead their school’s show. Let this ebook serve as an introduction to helming a theatre arts production and also as somewhat of a motivational guide. Imagine the chapters to come as an informal conversation between us: whether you are seeking new ideas or have been asked by your administration to produce a school show for the very first time. The chapters are arranged in the general order that resembles the development of a show; from deciding on a show all the way through to striking a set and the cast party. I hope to assure you that your students, school, community and you, yourself, will be so much better off with this kind of experience than without. The positive ripple effects from putting on a play are immeasurable. I believe that live theatre unites, utilizes and magnifies every single element of a well-rounded curriculum.
