Anne Hamilton/Hamilton Dramaturgy

Anne to Speak on Panel in NYC

I’m looking forward to speaking on a Theatre Resources Unlimited panel in New York City next Tuesday. Here’s the information. All are invited.

Tuesday April 24th, 7:30pm (networking at 7pm)
The Forgotten Members of Your Production Team:
Casting Director, Dialect Coach, Dramaturg, Fight Coach and Others

With Jennifer Peralta-Ajemian & Robin Carus, Partners/Casting Directors, J&R Creative; Anne Hamilton, Founder, Hamilton Dramaturgy; designer/technical director Nadine Charlsen; fight coordinator David Dean Hastings (currently on the Stage Combat Faculty at AMDA, NY); dramaturg and casting director Catherine Lamm; dialect coach Amy Stoller of Stoller System: Dialect Coaching and Design.

Even when producing on a limited budget, can you afford not to have all the members of your team on board? Sometimes the extra cost is worth it for the finished product. And sometimes you’ll simply get yourself into more trouble than it’s worth if you don’t have experts advising and helping create the show you envision. You might have to juggle your budget, but don’t short-change your art. Know when a casting director can help you find the best talent. Consider how a dramaturg and a dialect coach can keep an eye on authenticity and offer social and political contexts to support the drama on stage. Learn the strict union rules about something as simple as a stage slap, and how a fight coordinator might be legally essential. And don’t forget your technical director and sound designer! We’ll also look at what the standard fees are for these invaluable team members, and how to work with each of them most effectively.

Doors open at 7:00pm for networking and refreshments, panel starts promptly at 7:30pm. FREE for TRU members; $12 for non-members. Please call at least a day in advance (or much sooner) for reservations: 212/714-7628; or e-mail

Location: The Players Theatre, 115 Macdougal Street, 3rd floor, NYC
