Students in the School of Drama John Wells Directing Program are the intellectually curious and visionary leaders shining a light in the darkness. They are the pioneers capable of collaboratively shaping a creative viewpoint, eliciting the best from participants, making each the stronger for the whole. These directors have been immersed in a “think-tank,” an exhilarating crucible, and have envisioned the future of theater and contemporary performance. They have agility with classical work, new technologies and experimental approaches and possess the ability to articulate their own visions to create worlds that challenge us to lean in, to listen closely and to think. School of Drama directors are the vanguard in the spectrum of performative arts.
