Theather Assignment

This project is due Sunday of Week Four and is worth 30 points.

For thisproject, you will attend a live theatrical performance in your area.  You may choose a play or musical performed in a professional regional theater or by a good community theater or opera company.  Please, no school plays.  All choices of performance must be pre-approved by the instructor.  Students must obtain a program as both proof of attendance and source of information about the play.  This program must be scanned and uploaded along with the assignment. Your instructor will be happy to help you find a play in your area.  Musical theater and opera are acceptable. Students with children may attend a professional children’s theater production.

After attending the play, write a three-page theater review, in which you critique the performance.  Your critique should contain a brief summary of the plot as well as descriptions of certain aspects of the play such as acting, directing, set design, costumes, lighting, performance space, sound, etc.  Not all of these aspects need be described; choose those most salient to your experience of the play.

For help writing a theater review, you may download and read the two reviews below: August Wilson: Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom – Attached Octavio Solis: Lydia – Attached

Reviews should be in MLA or APA format and should contain a complete bibliographic reference for the theater program, textbook, and any other source of information used. Information on formats may be found here:

Students will be graded on the depth and thoughtfulness of their responses.  Any indication that the student did not actually attend the play in question—such as not understanding basic plot points or characterizations—will result in a failing grade.  Shallow or superficial responses will not receive a passing grade. Plagiarism will result in a zero grade.

All papers should be in MLA or APA format and should contain a complete bibliographic reference for all sources.  Proper in text citation format should also be used.
