Guideline for Playgoing Report #1
ABOUT THESE REPORTS:
The point of the Playgoing Reports is to
Connect what we are looking at in class to what you are watching and experiencing when you go to the theater.
Define what you will be posting and talking about in the Discussion thread.
When you are doing these reports, you don’t need to look at in the same way you would a term paper or an essay. The guidelines I am giving you are pretty specific, but they are really intended to give a prompt for posts in the discussion thread.
Each Playgoing report will have a different focus to it, depending on what we are covering in class.
NOTE: EACH PLAYGOING REPORT IS DIFFERENT. MAKE SURE TO USE THE CORRECT GUIDELINE FOR THE REPORT YOU ARE DOING. IF YOU USE THE WRONG GUIDELINE YOUR OVERALL GRADE ON THE REPORT WILL BE LOWERED.
The plays you use for reports must have been seen no earlier than one month before the semester started. A play that you saw three months ago, for example, will not be accepted for these assignments.
Music concerts cannot be used for these assignments.
I encourage you, when you go see the play to take notes, and also make sure to grab a program. It’s a good reference to have, and I also might ask you to say specific things about it.
In your post include:
The name of the Play
The name of the theater where you saw the play
The Date you saw the play
The Playwright’s name
The Director’s name
A very brief synopsis of what the play was about (two or three sentences at most)
Describe the lobby of the theater – was it comfortable? Cramped? Nicely decorated? Worn down?
Describe the audience – what were your impressions of the people you were watching the show with? Young? Old? Homogeneous? Very diverse?
Describe how the audience responded during the show – Attentive? Totally in to it? Bored? Laughing if there was humor?
Give some feedback about what you felt about the whole experience, positive and/or negative
Your original post should be about 200 words and is worth 30 possible points.
HOW TO FORMAT YOUR RESPONSE:
When you write your report in the discussion forum, please number each of your responses. So, for example, the first three parts of your response might look like this:
Hamlet; Blood in the Brain
Chabot College Stage One
Please do this for all 6 parts of your response.
