Training

Training is perhaps the most overlooked area in Christian drama.
It takes more than selecting a script, recruiting “artistic” or experienced people, handing out scripts for memorization, giving on-going directorial input.
DramaShare has training tools written in everyday, non-technical terms to assist you and all your team, from actors to directors to writers to offstage people. . .  AND ALSO FOR YOU. And DramaShare training can turn new, inexperienced recruits into confident dramatic ministers.
DramaShare has the tools for a successful drama ministry and you will succeed, regardless if you have NO previous training or experience.
All manuals are in electronic format, downloaded to your computer, meaning they are immediately available for you with no waiting for mail delivery. This is much less expensive for you, more easily searched and referenced, and easier to print off sections as required for informational or training purposes.
