“Learn to Think Like a Director” is a workshop presented by Silver City Community Theatre on script analysis and production. Award winning professional actor, director and educator Scott Plate is leading the workshop which continues every Wednesday, 6-8 p.m. from Jan. 10 to Feb. 28 at the Grant County Community Foundation Building, 1106 N Pope St, in Silver City.

Plate has a 35-year career in the performing arts. He chaired and nurtured two nationally-ranked performing arts training programs, and created an innovative performing arts residency in Zambia.

The workshop is simplified from a master’s-level class and is intended to give participants the basic knowledge and skills to begin using the language of a play to stage productions in two parts.

The aim of the first part is to teach proficiency in the analysis of play scripts and to develop practical skills. The second part consists of working with scenes from the plays analyzed and staging them with actors, using the understanding we’ve acquired in our analytical work.

The cost for both parts of the workshop is $150, which works out to less than $20 per session and $100 for students and seniors over 65.
