Students will create a design concept presentation for a published play. They will describe the theme of the play, think about and write a clear design concept and respond to questions from peers and teachers. They will describe two elements of theatrical design – scenic & lighting or costume & make-up – in their design concept presentation. They will create a presentation of the design concept that must include written documentation and visual/audio samples, multimedia and/or digital artifacts. The purpose of this exercise is not to generate actual designs but to demonstrate the learner's ability to analyze the design requirements of the play and to create an overall concept for expressing the theme of the play through design.
