-- 2005: The purpose of my online production books was to assist myself, cast and crew during pre-production and rehearsal periods. After the show is over I use webpages for my classes: directing, acting, drama.

Notesclasses.vtheatre.net -- After Theatre UAF
I have many problems in life, one of them the textbooks. Most theatre textbooks are written with the wrong attitude. They are for the students who understand everything. In my experience the kids come to my class because they DO NOT understand. Or even worse -- they understand it wrong!Did you read intro page? No? Ok, here the navigation again!
They got wrong ideas about acting, about theatre and about life. Before I can make them understand, they have to see wrong and right. In Fundamentals of Acting we do the usual -- some analysis, some exersices, monologues, scenes. It's okay, when you have in front of you a non-theatre major. The majors can go further, unless they stop surfing the profession. You didn't like this word I use -- "life," did you? That's where the resistance comes.
In math class they do not have to go through personal transformation, it's just "knowledge" -- we can't work this way in arts. In order to change yourself, you have to know yourself. That is the philosophy behind Method Acting. Art is very personal, on stage it's done on public.
I guess, somebody after my class wrote in the bathroom backstage -- Everything you know is wrong! No, not everything, boy! Only the things you do not know are wrong!
The good books on theatre are the difficult read. You have to stop and think, because you do not understand. Many textbooks I get for class adaption I glance through. Many looks the same. I teach full time since 1986 and every semester I order a new textbook for Acting One class. You see my problem?
I do not know if the Web is the answer, but I keep adding new webpages for my classes. Acting, Directing, Film, Drama...
And now Virtual Theatre Project!
