A GUIDE FOR THE STUDENT PLAYWRIGHT
1. The playwright should meet with the assigned director before casting—whether for a reading or a full production. Playwright and director should discuss how to cast the reading/production BEFORE auditions.
2. The playwright should plan to attend all phases of auditions—from the first through callbacks. The playwright should clearly indicate her preferences to the assigned director.
3. The playwright should attempt to attend all rehearsals, be willing to listen to cast and director and be engaged in a process of improving his play. An effort should be made to accommodate the playwright’s schedule so that he may attend rehearsals.
4. The playwright should attend as many performances of the produced play as possible.
