I need a duo acting scene...about 4-5 lines per person, two women either equal age or one older and one younger in the 20 years vs. 35 year range.
Any thoughts?

HELP ME, PLEASE [Feb. 5th, 2006|08:51 am]

Okay, so I am in deperate need of help. I have misplaced my copy of David Skars "Playmaking". And, I am hoping to start the unit with my students tomorrow. I have the book on order, but neglected to notice that the person who I ordered it from is sending it media mail, and I will most likely not have it until NEXT WEEK.

If anyone has the book, could you possibly do an outline of the first lesson plan for me and post it, PLEASE I will owe you so huge.

if I had access to a fax, I would say fax it, but I do not.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.


Any of you who have not heard of this book, get it. You won't be sorry. It is the best (in my opinion) playwriting program there is.

Working on scriptwriting textbook... [Jan. 31st, 2006|11:18 pm]

Hi! I'm new to the community. I am a playwriting teacher at Northwestern University and I'm working on a scriptwriting textbook. It's designed for university level playwriting students and pre-professional writing groups/workshops. Advanced high-school students could probably use it as well. On my lj, I'm posting chapters with exercises and I'm looking for feedback. Check it out and give me your thoughts. penscripts

Have any of you ever had a drama class of students who did NOT sign up for drama and have no interest in the subject? I'm over halfway through my Theatre Arts 1 class for the fall semester, but it's miserable. More than 2/3 of the class got stuck in there by Guidance when other classes filled up, and the students do not want to be in this class. The obvious solution is to tell them "suck it up and deal," but that's not working at all. Behavior problems are a huge issue in the class. One boy has a case worker who travels to all of his classes with me, and I think the case worker summed it up best when he said, "Every time you try to do something fun with them (i.e. scenes, games, etc.) they punish you by acting like preschoolers." I'm at my wit's end. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know of a really good example of the use of a chorus in a greek play/later? I'm trying to develop a lesson plan that would introduce high school students to a Greek play that uses the chorus. I am also specifically trying to show them how it evolved and how rements of the original chorus appear in some plays today. Any thoughts?

Thanks
Amanda

So I'm teaching a children's acting class in an after-school program at a local community center and two of my students recently dropped the program leaving me with a class of 3 - count em - 3 students!

Eek... so I'm having a hard enough time trying to come up with activities. Most of mine are geared towards larger groups, but I'd also like the students to do some type of small performance at the end of this 12-week program. I only see them once a week for 45 minutes. The kids are ages 8-9, two girls, one boy and all three are extremely creative, uninhibited, full of energy. Any ideas for such a small group in a short amount of time? I'm thinking something that's more physically engaging is better. These kids don't strike me as the type who are going to want to memorize lots of lines.

Thanks for any suggestions!
