You don't have to be a concentrator to direct a show or a piece of live art. The Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies not only offers a chance for a TAPS concentrator to direct a mainstage show every year, but we also offer faculty support to all of our students who seek mentorship when directing on any and all of their projects.
Don't forget that there are student directing opportunities all over Brown's campus. Take a look at Production Workshop and the other student performance groups, many of whom offer a myriad of directing opportunities throughout the year.
As mentioned above, a stellar opportunity for TAPS concentrators is directing for the Senior Slot. Every Spring, a junior concentrator is selected to direct a funded and staffed production on the mainstage Department Season in their senior year. If you are interested in directing and concentrating, consider the Theatre Arts track. For a more in-depth description of the concentration and the Senior Slot Opportunity consult the Undergraduate Handbook.
