Get to know the leadership

Rather than having a single director, Dramabuzz Senior has a committee of three directors. This ensures that the directors are always held to account, but also means that there is greater freedom for creativity from them. The directors manage the general admin of the group and are responsible for seeing that everything gets done.

The directors word is final in every production, this is to avoid endless arguments about what should or shouldn't be done. This does not, however, mean that the directors are closed to input from the cast. Especially in the early stages of production, cast input can be invaluable to the direction and tone of the show. The directors only ask that cast members respect and trust their vision for the production and submit to that fully.

Who are the directors

We have three different directors, each with a different focus within the show. Together, our directors organise and produce the show and ensure that nothing is neglected. There is of course much overlap between the directors - the roles are there as a means of creating responsibility. Each director has both on-stage and off-stage responsibilities
