The Art House Creative Workshops 2022
In-Depth Directing with Richard Carroll

Richard Carroll is a director, writer and producer based in Sydney. In 2020, he directed a new production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! for Black Swan State Theatre Co, and The Boy, George, a one-person show starring comedian Joel Creasey. In 2019 he directed Monty Python’s Spamalot at Hayes Theatre Co, and Once at Darlinghurst Theatre Co and Merrigong Theatre Co. Monty Python’s Spamalot toured Australia in 2020. Once will return to Darlinghurst Theatre Company for another season in 2021, followed by a tour.

Richard directed an acclaimed production of Calamity Jane at Hayes Theatre Co in 2017 starring Virginia Gay, which toured to five cities in 2018-19 including a mainstage season at Belvoir and a 5-week run at Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre.  He won a Sydney Theatre Award for Best Production of an Independent Musical, and was nominated for Best Director of a Musical for Calamity Jane.

In this workshop, Richard takes a deep-dive into Directing for theatre, sharing his knowledge and expertise. Participants are encouraged to bring their own ideas for productions they are planning to or would like to direct, so that they can ask questions and come up with practical ideas. Richard will also talk through a few of his own productions from beginning to end, and share some of the problems encountered, how a director might overcome these, or even how they might turn them to their advantage
