The production attempt of displaying things in familiar way that is accurate to life. Costumes give a visual appealing sense of how people were likely to wear. Each character’s costume needs to match their class standing in the society that the people could have worn. Actions that done by the characters as a response because of something that has happened or due to the fact that they have a motive, is important to the play but have to be done in an understandable or reasonable way. Dialogue has to close to what someone say as if they are having a real life conversation. In the production that was so important to showcasing any play is portraying it something with as much accuracy to where it becomes hard to distinguish what could happen versus what is not really likely to happen. The more a production pays attention to details such as costumes, actions, and dialogue and the more the actors can succeed in performing a truthful
The setting that was used in this version of the play was able to show the formality of the era and setting. The setting established the importance of the king and the queen by placing them at the highest point in the room. The setting also gives the character a visual performance of where the characters would be in the scene. This interpretation by the acting company is a clear resemblance of the era that the play has established and how the setting would've been like in the
The music elaborates this mood which set up the audience of the events that will unfold. As the scenery does as well, the colorful intro into the play gives a hint of the wild comedy that will be seen. A rich artistic, platform of the year 2035 that possibly surprises the audience on it being so plain or actually not used with more technology of a countryside. The characters costumes bring in the mood of one another. Each dress and suit correlating with the mood that each one will show during the play. Comedy that brings around the dark and never the innocence of four teenagers.
From what I believe, this play only takes place in one main setting where there is a tree that has a lack of leaves and then is full of trees. Basically, I would design my scenery by creating a dirt/country type of road that is on the older side, have the tree, a high mound/stone where Estragon can sit, and so on. Then with the overall costume design, I picture the characters to have clothes that are on the dirtier side as they have been sitting and waiting for days. Also, the clothes would be formal and most likely with a top hat since that was common back in the day. Finally, for the lighting I would have it change similar to that of daylight. Of course the characters would each have some extra light shown on them, but overall I want it to be slightly darker to portray the theme of confusion of the play. Now, for the two characters I would focus on specifically, I will choose Lucky and Pozzo. For Lucky, since he is a slave and in horrible condition, I would have his clothes all ripped up, his neck on the bloody side from the rope, his hair all messed up, his body language distraught and hunched over, and constantly holding a bag. On the other hand, Pozzo would have a hat on, dirty/formal clothes with a coat and maybe a tie that’s pulled down a little around the neck, his hands full of calluses from holding the rope, and
... of the floral shop at the beginning of the play, I would have the stage set with very minimal set pieces to emphasize the absence of wealth. I would have a very apparent clock in the opening scene to emphasize the time slowly ticking by. I think that the emphasis should be on the plant and on the characters, not on an elaborate store or set pieces on the stage. The main set piece should be the elaboration of the plant as it grows and thrives. Nothing should take away from this. I think that the absence of unnecessary props will allow the audience members to interpret the underdevelopment of Skid Row and also concentrate on the development of the plot and the character changes, especially in the case of Seymour and Audrey as they begin their relationship, which will cause the ending scene to be all the more dramatic when they both die at the hands of Audrey II.
The school has almost four hundred students of which twenty seven participated in the play. However, Quest was not putting up the play alone. Atascocita High School, also in Humble, provided set pieces, crew, and a theatre, located inside the school, in which the play was performed in. The director of the play was Jamie Knox, a professor of AVID, Theatre I, and Theatre II. The time period of the play was changed from early nineteen hundreds to the late fifties and sixties. This made the play more relevant to the audience as it gave a time period that they were more familiar with. In addition, live people wore all black clothing and the dead wore white. Each character also had an accent piece which told something about their age, morals, or role. However, there were two exceptions, the Stage Manager and Samantha Craig, initially a male in the original version, did not follow the color or accent piece rule because both did not live in the town. As a whole, the play was excellent. It had a light and happy mood in the first act which set the audience perfectly to the shocker that was the second act. Our Town kept me and the audience hooked through the longevity of the play. I especially loved that the play left a massive space for personal interpretation of the costumes, characters, and the setting
"Hey guys this dress is perfect for my Betty Boop costume!" Cali exclaimed as she ran up to a short, bright red dress that hung inside Charlotte Russe. "Yeah, it's really cute" I said running my hand over a few of the dresses that hung on the rack next to it. "And this one would be perfect for my costume" I said, picking up a red skater dress and looking over at Brook as she clicked at the keys on her phone, a huge smile spread across her
The play is set in an industrial city in the Midlands of 1912 and is
No expense was spared while creating the costumes for “Whipped Cream.” During the show ballet dancers wore specific costumes based on their characters. Princess Praline adorned a red and white candy cane inspired leotard with an elaborate pink tutu decorated with scattered white pompoms. Atop her head was a diamond encrusted crown with pink tulle in the center. Princess Tea Flower displayed a leotard covered in pink ombre petals and a green tutu with layered silk “leaves.” Prince Cocoa bore a dark brown
Imagine reading one of Shakespeare’s plays and then getting the chance of a lifetime to live in that time period the play was set in, seeing the whole city for all its glory and fascination. Then realizing many of Shakespeare’s descriptions all match up with the buildings, the people, and society. Even the smallest details are all around making the city come to life in that society, time and place. Shakespeare wrote his plays in the 1500’s and depicted many of these features in his writing. He made his readers go back to that time and love how the people of that time period lived and how their society worked. One of the most interesting things about two of Shakespeare’s most famous writings, A Midsummer’s Night Dream and Romeo & Juliet, is that they are historically accurate.
