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...


I'm proud to celebrate my 18th year as producing artistic director of Gi60 US  - performances at The Tank NYC July 6, 7, 8 and 9, shows at 7:00 - for tickets, visit 

All the Classroom's a Stage: Applying Theater Principles to Teaching Techniques (co-author Michael Flanagan) is available for purchase  here.  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.
