The Second City Directing Program Returns In September
By The Second City | Jul 29, 2018
Ever dreamed of directing for The Second City?
Then direct your attention to this thrilling news:
The Second City Directing Program is back!
The 2018-19 program begins September 4th, and applications are due August 10th.
The Second City Directing Program is a focused study of directing improv and revue comedy. A small group is selected for this advanced program designed for students who are already interested in Second City-style shows and becoming a Second City director. The purpose of the program is to mentor potential directors in the skills and best practices of a professional Second City director.
Take it from the pros:
The folks taking the program will be getting a lot of hands-on experience they can’t get anywhere else. And with our style of directing being such a specific skill set–wearing so many hats–it will help them truly understand why Second City directors have gone on to create amazing content on our stages and beyond.
-Anthony LeBlanc, Co-Artistic Director
As a Director, I think hands-on learning is the best way to acquire skills and grow as an artist. I’m very excited for the re-launch of this immersive program. The resources and access this unique opportunity provides to the next generation of directors is amazing.
