CONNIE: Theatre Director

Connie, like many girls, wanted to go on the stage, but two years convinced her it was not her field. She was interested, however, in directing, so went to a small city in Michigan, and launched the Community Theatre there. The book gives considerable insight and advice into the work of producing plays, making costumes, painting scenery, making people act -- and in addition, how to make friends and interest a community in such a project. John Golden's foreword, his suggestions as to links with public libraries, the Equity Library Theatre etc. give an authentic note. There's a heart throb too -- though frankly the plot seems contrived, and the value of the book lies in its sound data on theatre direction as a career.
