Rose Burnett Bonczek

Director, Author, Consultant, Educator

 I'm a New York based theater practitioner who has directed in NYC, regional, international and educational theatre for many years. As an educator, I  developed and supervised the BFA Acting Program at Brooklyn College, CUNY and in 2018 I received the Oscar Brockett Excellence in Teaching Theatre in Higher Education Award from the Association for Theater in Higher Education. I've co-authored 3 books for Routledge Press focusing on ensemble, collaboration skills, and the impact of technology on collaborative behaviors. In 2018 I took a leap of faith and embarked on a new journey as an independent consultant.


These days...

  I'm directing the US premiere of Seashell Sweetie by Canadian playwright Aurora Stewart de Pena for Voyage Theater Company on December 12, 2019.  I coach actors for graduate school and professional auditions, and offer 4 week intensive acting classes. Recently, I've been a consultant for organizations such as Atlantic Theater Company, Stable Cable Lab Co., Fordham University, CNY Arts Inc. and on Nov. 23/24 I'll be an adjudicator for the annual Theater Association of New York State Festival in Rome, NY.  I'm proud to be in my 15th year as the artistic director of Gi60: The International One Minute Theatre Festival: US Edition, and yes - working on a fourth book with the terrific Mike Flanagan!
