Stage directions are directions given to the actor(s) by the director. They involve the physical movement of the actors on stage. The actors are supposed to note the direction…s in their scripts. The Stage Manager is also supposed to write down all stage directions in their master book, known as the "Prompt Book". If there is any disagreement about where an actor is supposed to move, or how, the prompt book is the final word. If the director does not like the movement, or changes his mind, the prompt book is revised. Terms: Upstage: moving away from the audience, towards the back of the stage. Downstage: Moving towards the audience, towards the front of the stage. Stage Right: Moving towards the Right (facing the audience) Stage Left: Moving towards the Left (facing audience). Cross: Crossing the stage to a predetermined position. An example in a prompt book might look like: "X(cross) DSL to DSC (down stage center), X US (upstage), and out (exit) SR (stage right). The above is just a few major terms. There is a different notation used choreography is being notated.
it is direction giving to characters of a play
stage direction is the different places, or directions on stage from the actors perspective facing the house(audience). centerstage, downstage, upstage, left center, right cen…ter, up right, down right, up left, down left it is direction giving to characters of a play "Downstage" means towards the audience. "Upstage" means away. If you face upstage, stage left and right are your right and left. Not sure what you mean, but stage directions tell an actor where to go at certain points in the script. Downstage is toward the audience, upstage is away from the audience, and stage left and right are from the point of view of an actor facing the audience. Center stage is quite simply the center of the stage, or whatever part of the stage has been previously cited. So an actor facing the audience whose stage directions call for downstage right will walk forward and to the right.

Stage directions allow for a director or playwright to successfully communicate with the actors in order to bring their vision to life. Like trying to reach a location without… a map or directions would be impossible, trying to stage a play without the stage directions would result in a complete mess of actors on the stage.

The stage direction says that you give her the letter as you explain its contents.
A play, drama, a movie.
So when your director gives you blocking you actually know where to go. This is a very important thing to know. Especially if you're an actor or stage manager.
an action (usually movement) given (usually by the director) to the performer on stage. for example- a director might ask the actor to move to stage left whilst he/she is sayi…ng their line. hope this helps :)
The stage without the stage directions is nothing!
It's just a stage. You cant have anything without stage directions
