Abstract: The purpose of this thesis was to compile a practical manuscript for directing a production of the musical Ernest In Love by Anne Croswell and Lee Pockriss. This specific purpose was achieved by studying the script, producing the play, and evaluating the production after a series of public performances. Part One includes the following: (1) brief biographies of the authors, (2) history of previous performances, (3) a synopsis of the script, (4) character descriptions and analyses, (5) a discussion of the function and mood of the sets, lights and costumes, and (6) justification for the director's choice of the script. Part Two is the director's prompt book for the production of Ernest In Love which was performed on July 7, 8, and 9, 1969, on the main stage of the W. Raymond Taylor Speech and Drama Building at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In addition to the production plates and photographs, this chapter includes notation on (1) blocking, (2) composition, (3) details of characterizations, (4) stage business, and (5) timing.
