Directing Scripted Texts Workshops presented by Drug Aware
Riptide Youth Theatre engaged director Jeffrey Jay Fowler to mentor four young emerging directors in directing their first plays and contributing to the final production of Tide Tales.
The full ensemble of 14 young people had the opportunity to work with Fowler throughout the development, gaining confidence in building a play text from page-to-stage and growing into capable leaders.
“I learnt to collaborate and work with a team in all aspects, as well as be in charge of one. From working with a writer, to conducting a cast, to creating the vision with the designer, I got to have a say in all of that, and as I’ve only ever been a cast member in things, this was a fun challenge for me!” – Teaghan Lowry, director
