Stage Directors

Work Environment

Stage directors work in theaters around the country. They may work in large or small theaters, and some successful directors work on Broadway. Others may work in regional theaters, dinner theaters, community theaters, summer stock, and so on. Since directors must go where the work is, travel is a common part of the job, especially if they are directing a touring production. Work hours may be long and irregular. The unpredictable nature of the work makes it difficult for stage directors to work a standard work week. Most work is conducted in the theater or in rehearsal studios.
