Description


If you're hoping to find that one simple high school text that "tells it all" for your beginning theatre class, then look no further Marsh Cassady has taught theatre at the high school and college level for many years and is currently a director, playwright and award-winning author whose 20 books are used extensively in schools. Fifteen chapters grouped into five sections present a complete overview of the art of theatre (theatre styles, genres and structures), directing (interpreting a script, casting and rehearsing), design (scenery, lighting, costumes and makeup), acting (imagination, improvisation, body, voice, character analysis) and the history of theatre. The chapters are a good length for student reading, and abundant photos, diagrams and illustrations help explain key concepts. This classroom textbook also includes several plays and scenes to allow students to 'flesh out' characters.
