Thanks for visiting theDrektor!
I hope you can find everything you need. theDrektor is focused on providing high-quality theatrical direction, set design and audience satisfaction - we will do everything we can to meet your expectations.
I believe that the production of a quality theatrical piece is a collaboration between director, writer, cast, designers, crew and audience.
Theatre is meant to invoke thought and emotions, up or down. Audiences should leave the theatre discussing the elements of the production they've just encountered, character, plot, resolve, not simply saying - "That was a good play," or "That wasn't very good." My goal is to make them think.
A well-done theatrical piece should be one in which the actors reach into the chests of the audience members, removes their hearts for a couple of hours, massages those hearts, makes them feel, laughter or tears, and then returns their hearts and sutures them up for the trip home.
In addition to directing, Sheldon has founded the Tucson Alliance of Dramatic Artists (TADA!). This group of talented actors, directors, writers and theatre technicians is dedicated to the advancement of new, original plays with social, human, historical or political relevance. Plays are read by a team of writers and directors and narrowed down to the best for a full-stage production.
An exciting, brand new activity is the founding of the new, Alliance Performance Center of Tucson. Working with John Vornholt, Warren Bodow, and a Board of Tucson Theatre Elites, This conceptual theatre center is NOW OPEN and will house all of the non-affiliated theatre companies in Tucson under one roof. Thus far, TADA and Roadrunner Theatre Company are the two resident companies.
There'll be no more wondering in which facility your favorite theatre company is performing. These companies can share ideas, props, costumes and more. And, best of all, FREE PARKING!
