This project entailed the selection, background research and documentation, play analysis, casting, direction, vocal coaching, choreography, and post-production analysis of Winterhaven School's production of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Documentation includes research and analysis of the play, and an evaluation of the play as a production vehicle for the department of Theatre Arts at Central Washington University. The analysis also includes a discussion as to the non-traditional directorial vision of this production.
