The Response Papers on the live theatrical production
The Response Papers on the live theatrical production should be a paper in which you “review” your experience as an audience member. You will do this by discussing the following topics: Acting (and singing if it is a musical), Costuming, Makeup, Sets and Lighting. You must state your opinions on each item and then defend it with specific examples. Do not submit a synopsis of the action. This will result in an automatic F. The paper itself should be four pages long, double-spaced in 12 point Times New Roman font with a one inch margin all the way around. These are worth 100 points each for a total of 200 points.
What I want in the paper specifically is YOUR opinion on whether or not the production elements made the play work OR if they failed to work. You may see a show you don’t like or you may see show you love but the most IMPORTANT thing is that you give your opinion and then SUPPORT IT WITH SPECIFIC EXAMPLES FROM THE SHOW YOU SAW.
