Intro to Dramaturgy Powerpoint
Access to the prop shop
Have the pictures of the Little Shop of Horrors lobby display up as class gets started.
“How did everyone’s brainstorm sessions go last time?”
“Lobby displays are a creative process, use today to get more ideas, but I want to see everyone’s display built by the last 10 minutes of class. We will then take a chance to go around and look at everyone’s.”
“Remember we have plenty of stuff here in the class that you can use for your displays. Get creative and have fun with it.”
Give students until the last 10 minutes of class to work.
At the 10 minute mark, walk around with the class to look at everyone’s displays. Have the students observe what’s on them.
After the walk through have students write a brief explanation of their lobby display design. What did they include and why? This explanation will be included in their casebooks. Encourage the students to take pictures of their displays before taking them down!!
