The Amateur Theatre Handbook is the essential handbook for anyone involved in amateur dramatics. Keith Arrowsmith guides the reader through the potential pitfalls of putting on a production, from preliminary planning and choosing a play, through stage management, to first night. There are sections on staging a show, group organisation and special performances, covering legal rights and obligations, health and safety, budgeting, copyright law, choosing a venue, stage management and front-of-house, plus a comprehensive reference section. Using personal anecdotes, checklists and clear guidelines, this is a comprehensive and accessible handbook for all aspects of amateur production.
