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 - currently, I coach and teach privately, and consult for organizations such as Atlantic Theater Company, Fordham and CNY Arts.


These days...


All the Classroom's a Stage: Applying Theater Principles to Teaching Techniques (co-author Michael Flanagan) is available for purchase  here - and for Online Adaptations of Exercises from the book, visit my ATCAS main page.  A dynamic support tool for teachers of all subjects, the book will be exceptionally helpful as we transition from Zoom to in-person learning once again.

And check out our recent interview with Patrick McAndrew, host of the podcast Relate -  


I 'm also teaching a series of online improv workshops for actors to strengthen the skills needed to tell the challenging stories of these times. Additionally, I'm guiding seminars on Story - what is story, its power and purpose, and examining our role as storytellers.
