Notes from today:
Three types of stages and the stage areas...
A proscenium stage has an audience on ONE SIDE.
A thrust stage has an audience on THREE SIDES.
An arena stage (theater-in-the-round) has an audience on ALL SIDES, and is diagrammed like a compass (N, E, W, S, NE, SE, NW, SW, and C) or the face of a clock (digits 1 through 12 and C).
Homework for BOTH Theater II & III:
Listen to and observe 3 different people. Describe what you see and hear in DETAIL. DO NOT USE NAMES in your description. DO NOT MAKE YOUR SUBJECT AWARE OF YOU. Simply observe and describe. (Theater II students place this assignment in your journal. Theater III students will turn in your descriptions to Ms. Y tomorrow.)
