Theatre Director Resume Samples

A Theatre Director oversees many aspects of staging plays, or drama, from casting to performance to hiring cast crew. While not all directors are tasked with the same work tasks, a well-written Theater Director Resume mentions the following core duties – programming and budgeting, breaking down the script, analyzing and exploring the content and conducting relevant research, translating and interpreting a script or musical score; managing time and organizing people and space, attending production meetings with set designers, communicating and liaising with all parties involved, attending preview performances and preparing detailed notes for the cast, managing time and organizing people, and helping in publicizing the production by giving interviews and leading discussions.

The Director will need – creativity and the ability to express, persuasiveness and the willingness to take artistic risks, excellent negotiation, and interpersonal skills, the ability to work as a part of the team, awareness and a good understanding of technical issues, the ability to develop innovative ideas and solve problems, and knowledge of relevant health and safety legislation and procedures. A degree is not a mandatory requirement, as many Theater Directors climb the success ladder after being an actor, assistant director, or stage manager.
