The Michael Langham Workshop for Classical Direction – a director training program with emphasis on classical text
The Michael Langham Workshop is for theatre directors, from emerging to mid-stage in their career. Their primary task will be assistant directing one of the plays in the Festival’s 2018 season. The Festival’s 2018 season begins in February with the final openings in August. Assistant directors are usually required for 8-16 weeks within that timeframe.
The Globe Theatre (Regina SK) offered relaxed performances as part of its production of The Little Mermaid. Open to everyone, the environment was adapted for people with autism, physical and cognitive disabilities and families with small children.
