Even as an actor, and a writer Michelle Mary Schaefer would love to direct more plays and/or films.
If you would like her to direct a project, contact her!
Ms. Schaefer has directed the following projects:
Children of a Lesser God
Director and DASL, Hope Summer Rep Theatre in Holland, Michigan, July 2021.
Due to the last minute drop-out of the lead actor, she also took over the lead role of Sarah Norman, and credits the lovely associate director, Maggie Spanuello, for helping her make this happen.
The Wizard of Oz
As a student teaching at Margaret's House at the Rochester Institute of Technology Campus, Schaefer adapted and directed this for kindergartners. Deemed very succesful, the self-esteem of the young students improved. She used this in her research for her educational presentation "Theatre does incrase student's esteem, creativity, academic, and communication."
