Synopses & Reviews
As the nonprofessional theatre continues to grow in popularity, its technology expands at a dizzying rate, presenting exciting new opportunities and challenges for all nonprofessional theatre craftsmen. This new edition of a stage manager’s old friend takes into account many aspects of the new theatre technology, insuring the book’s lasting place in college, high school, and community theatres everywhere. It is a book more likely to be found backstage on a stepladder than on a library shelf, and this is exactly what the author has intended. The emphasis is on simplicity, economy, and practicability. It is a book that can help now to put any play into production.
Here, for a whole new generation of theatre craftsmen, is Stagecraft for Nonprofessionals. This is the basic handbook of stagecraft, the practical companion of thousands of amateurs for more than twenty-five years.
