"Well, I used to direct haunts for 4-H," she said. "I wrote lines and gave direction to participants in our Halloween haunts. Other than that, the last time I directed was as a freshman in high school."
And for Carder, who directs the Kanawha Players' production of "The Sugar Bean Sisters" opening Friday, coming back has been kind a crash refresher course on stagecraft and community theater.
However, Carder said her education really started months ago, when she first started coming around the Kanawha Players.
"I kind of got involved with the Kanawha Players because of my son," she said.
The two of them went to see the troupe's production of "Evil Dead: The Musical" in October and then decided to go back the next night to sell concessions for the theater group.
"We bought snacks, sold them and gave the money to them," she said.
