The effects of team leadership on a theatrical production

by Gasch, Samuel


This thesis examines the effects of Team Leadership on a theatrical production. Following the model of Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, an orchestra that has no conductor, this thesis examines the possibility of a theatrical production without the central leadership figure of the director. To study these effects, actors were brought in and asked to be a part of a production wherein they would perform their own roles and also serve as co-directors. This thesis suggests that the Team Leadership Model can be effective if certain pre-conditions are satisfied: actors auditioned based on their ability to work together as a team, a clear structure and outline of responsibilities for all participants, and a reasonable amount of time to allow the team to work together effectively. This thesis found that the Team Leadership Model can be an effective leadership model for a theatrical production, but these pre-conditions must be satisfied.
