There should be ONE prompt book for each group, so 3 total in the whole class. Some of the items are collaborative, some are individual, and some are universal (each student hands in their script, for example).
Please write the name of the person most responsible for each component at the top of each page, as well as all who contributed to it.
For your prompt books, please remember to include the following:
__ Hard copy. This is not an online course.
__ The Players: List each character, with a 2-3 word descriptor, and the actor playing him or her.
__ Blocking Map: For each of your scenes, draw a sketch of the stage and where actors enter, stand, and move throughout the scene.
__Scene Overview: You’ll need an overview for each scene that you’re performing. Describe the plot, mood, and context of this scene. How does it connect to the rest of the story? What makes this scene funny/tragic, etc? (3-4 good paragraphs)
__Character Analyses: Explore the personality, motivations, flaws, relationships, inconsistencies, and growth of each character in your scene. One page minimum per character.
__Research: Each student hands in the results of their research. This should be an organized paper, typed, 1.5-2 pages long. Include a separate "Works Cited" page as your bibliography. Please use your Kealing Writing Manual rather than EZbib for guidance.
__Props List: checklist of all hand-held items and minor set pieces (stool, chair, etc.) and who is providing them. Your script should be also be annotated to designate who needs what props and when.
__Costumes: Sketch the costume concept for your group. Keep a checklist of all necessary costume items. Don’t forget to annotate the script for costume changes, additions.
__Annotated Script: include blocking notes, facial expressions, tone of voice, as well as “to__________” statements for each speech or small section of dialogue. (Ex: to explain the backstory to the audience, to provide foreshadowing, to show the character’s motivation.) Specifically, you must:
1. Underline the word in each line of your part which should have the most emphasis.
2. Draw a slash (/) in your part where your character should pause.
3. Draw squiggly lines over the part of your text which should be said slowly for dramatic emphasis.
