Theatre

...The Analysis 1. The novel “Theatre” was written by a famous English writer of the 20th century William Somerset Maugham in 1937. He was the master of story-telling. He could convey human relationships and feelings with a startling reality. The main theme of his works is the conflict of a creative person with the society. Maugham’s English is clear and lucid, his characters are recognizable, and this makes his books so popular. 2. This extract is about Dolly de Vries. She was a rich widow and Michael and Julia asked her for help, she agreed because she was interested in Julia and admired her talent. But she didn’t much like Michael. He was sure that Dolly might put up the money they needed, but he knew that she might do it only for Julia but not for him. Julia refused to approach her. But when they were going to spend the week-end with Dolly, he urged Julia to seize the opportunity that the week-end presented. Julia explained that people financed plays for two reasons, either because they wanted notoriety, or because they were in love with someone. But Michael had never even thought that Dolly was in love with him. He was very surprised when Julia told him that it was not he whom Dolly loved. He didn’t believe it. 3. This extract belongs to the belles-lettres functional style, the main purpose of which is to give the readers aesthetic pleasure, to make them think and entertain by appealing to their emotions. The major part of the text is presented by......

Renaissance Theatre.

...Renaissance Theatre. The Protestant Reformation in northern Europe put an end to most religious drama by the mid-16th century, and a new, dynamic secular drama developed in its place. The Renaissance began at different times in different areas of Europe and was a slow process of change rather than a sudden shift in ideas and values. England The English drama of the 16th cent. showed from the beginning that it would not be bound by classical rules. Many themes and ideas can be seen in the components of the Elizabethan drama. For example, many works were influenced by other works. Themes on revenge were seen and blood and killing was evidenced in many works by, for instance, Thomas Kyd 's Spanish Tragedy (c.1586). Marlowe’s works presented deeper meanings of questioning life. Shakespeare, of course, stands as the supreme dramatist of the Renaissance period, equally skilful at writing tragedies, comedies, or chronicle plays. His great achievements include the perfection of a verse form and language that captures the spirit of ordinary speech and yet stand above it to give a special dignity to his characters and situations; a marvellous ability to unify plot, character, imagery, and verse movement. With the reign of James I the English drama began to decline until the closing of the theatres by the Puritans in 1642.

Peppercorn Dining

...Peppercorn Dining is the diner on the campus of All-American University. The dynamics of the diner consists of fulltime workers, temporary workers, and student workers. The three partners of Square One Consulting; Roger, Lynn, and Erica, were having lunch at Peppercorn one afternoon; Erica worked at Peppercorn two years ago as a student worker. The manager of Peppercorn’s name is Drew Randall; he recognized Erica and came over to say high and chit chat with her about the “old days” when she worked at Peppercorn. During the course of their conversation, Erica asked Drew how things were currently operating; Drew replied by saying, “Staffing is a nightmare. We can’t find qualified people anywhere; recruiting and retention has become a constant challenge” (Cummings & Worley, 2008, p. 217). Of course, the other consultants were all ears and wanted to hear everything that Drew had to say. However, although Drew knew there were many symptoms of a much bigger problem, he had no idea what the “root” of the problem was. He would eventually enter into a contract with the consultants to get their unbiased, external point of view as to what the bigger problems really were at Peppercorn. The consultants would use various data collection methods involving the management, workers, and the customers to get a clearer picture as to what the actual problems were and why the students working at Peppercorn were unhappy and why recruitment for additional student help was......

Senses in Dining

...Role of the senses in a human dining experience Food in recent times has evolved beyond just the taste buds. Eye appeal, smell and textures have now become involved in a complete dining experience. Today it is not just about how good the food on your plate tastes, but also about where you eat it, how it looks on your plate, how you eat it, the sounds, if any emitting from it and how it smells. In short it involves all senses in the human body. Where you dine is an important aspect in what you take out of a meal. If you have the same food at a roadside dhaba and at a Michelin star restaurant, it will still feel and taste different because of the different dining environments. Ambience is an important aspect of the dining experience. This is the reason why restaurants spend a pretty penny on getting the look of the dining area just right in order to give their customers a unique meal. In ethnic or specialty restaurants, the entire focus is on recreating the atmosphere, which is why you have traditional art work on walls, mirrors and staff wearing traditional clothes as a fixture in Indian specialty restaurants or pictures from 50’s America along with car seat type seating in an American themed diner. Customers also get unconsciously perceived signals from the restaurant décor. Bright lights and loud colours, as found in most fast food joints gets them to hurry up and complete their food whereas subdued colours and dim lighting in upscale restaurants gets them to relax,......

Theatre in the Round

...Theatre in the Round became increasingly popular in the late 1960s in the UK and Europe, with initially the format proving popular in smaller venues and studio spaces. The first “Theatre in the Round” theatre in the UK was the formed by Stephen Joseph in 1955, now called the Stephen Joseph Theatre. However, a permanent location was not found until 1988 by artistic director and playwright Alan Ayckbourn. The first large Theatre in the Round was built in a disused corn exchange in Manchester in 1976 and was named “The Royal Exchange Theatre”. The Royal Exchange is now one of the country’s most well known theatre outside of London. The first Theatre in the Round in America was the built at The University of Washington in 1940. Theatre in the Round offers the audience a closer intimacy with the stage than proscenium theatre, and it also puts the audience in direct view of each other. A 360 degree sight line means that large scenery is out of the question unless it is suspended above the actors’ heads and out of the audiences’ view. Theatre in the Round tends to be a format chosen for intimate productions, although some large scale operas and theatre productions have also used the format. Below Is a sketch/Diagram of The In the Round Theatre : Traverse is a form of catwalk - though in its purest form it does not have the stage and back wall area that a fashion catwalk has - the purest form of traverse is illustrated above. Traverse offers an intimate setting and has also...

Theatre Arts Modern Theatre

...rules by which the production team works. Currently, producing Shakespeare does not mean that it has to be done in Renaissance England. Indeed, artists have found that updating the location and time of a Shakespearean play makes it more believable, and in a sense, breathes new life into it. Moreover, advances in technology have also strongly influenced this period and its theatrical spectacle. The use of plastics, steel, aluminum, advanced lighting control, and sound recording equipment drastically changed the face of theatre production and quality. This is also a period of open experimentation both in design and production and has resulted in the development of the minimalistic and fractured realism styles. Minimalism is a style, which reduces the design elements to the least number necessary to produce the production. Fractured realism uses limited realistic elements separated in a fractured nature. Furthermore, a division of the theatre workforce into separate specialized artisans increases both operational efficiency and overall quality. The development of the technical director to oversee the production elements further organizes the modern theater. However, this specialization requires a great amount of trust and collaboration between the director and other artists on the production team. The advent of director/designer teams like Eli Kazan and Jo Melziner are in response to this emerging need for collaboration. Historical Background......

Dining Hall

...Barrett dining hall through diverse selection of food, communal tables and casual dress creates an inclusive dining experience for students. When you walk into the dining hall for your first time as a college student, it seems a bit like a zoo. With people all over the place, running to grab the last piece of pizza; we all have a different view on our dining hall. When I walk in the first thing I see are patrons eating. Some people are by themselves eating alone and on their cell phones, or some people by themselves are studying, waiting for the next class to start. Most people are in groups conversing with new people, trying to meet as many people as possible. All over the world, food is used to bring people together. Working in the restaurant industry for two years I’ve learned that the atmosphere of which you are eating in can enrich or worsen your experience. The open floor plan of the dining hall creates easy access from all directions of Barrett, making it easy for students to get to the dining hall no matter where they are coming from. The open seating plan also makes is less awkward to sit by yourself when you’re grabbing a quick bowl of cereal before your 9am class. The area is spacious, and can hold a lot of students in different sections. The modern design is accentuated with this open floor plan. Barrett dining hall is definitely the nicest dining hall on campus with its updated features all over and the spacious, clean, modern look. I asked student Jordan Manny......

...THTR 1013 Play Critique I watched a musical comedy at the Cameron University theatre titled Where’s Charley on April 24th, 2014. The book was written by George Abbott. The performance itself was directed by Scott Klein, the orchestra conducted by Holli Hill Le, choreographed by Katie Veehuizen and the costume and make-up design by Eric Abbott. The cast consisted of about 20 actors including the ensemble. The basic theme of the play is love and the means of deception in which it was found. The story I found to be an interesting one and it was the first time I watched a play since my stay in the U.S aside going to the cinemas. The play portrayed deceptive means on how to truly get attached to the one you love and means by which that works, that I found funny because in the real world people actually do such things. It was entertaining and after the play I went on to YouTube to search for that same play acted out by others students in a different school and I can say well enough that this group from Cameron University acted it out well. The play was well casted and it is hard for me to pick a favorite from Jack Chesney (Mark Deyesso, Jr), Charley Wykeham (Dylan Bittner) and Amy Spettigue (Ashley Winfrey). They did so well than I expected as I saw a sign of nervousness in them at the beginning of the play but as time went by they greatly improved. They were also believable especially in terms where they had to play major roles. For example Amy’s “the woman in his......

Theatre

...Executive summary Theatre is one of the oldest and most intriguing forms of performance arts. Since time immemorial, it has served as a source of recreation that has delighted as well as inspired audience in equal measure. It has also made immense contributions to other industries, not in the least, the incredibly popular movie industry which owes not only most of its best actors, but its very identity as a whole to the field of theatre. However, with increasing and more easily available avenues for entertainment and rampant commercialisation, the theatre industry has been crowded out and faces a tough challenge for survival as of now.

...write about how the style of Roman theatres has carried throughout generations and resembles the theatres in today’s society. The Greeks had massive theatres holding thousands of people but the Roman downsized and made their theatres more concise and similar to theatres that are built today. Not all of the characteristics of today’s theatres and the Roman theatres are the same, as I will explain in the following section, but the Roman style of theatre is more relatable than the Greeks theatre style and still has made an impact on theatres today. Section 2: Roman theatres have resemblance to the theatres that are built in today’s society. The Roman’s designed their theatres based on the Greeks, who came before them, but changed many aspects to fit their culture. The parts of the Roman theatres that are still seen in theatres built today are the unit itself, the orchestra shape, and the auditorium shape. Before the Romans, theatres were built into hills by the Greeks, but the Romans were the first to connect the auditorium and the scene building to make one unit. This is clearly how all theatres are built in today’s society, from theatres such as the Thompson Theatre all the way to Broadway. By connecting the auditorium and scene into one unit this also changed the shape of the building into a semicircle, which you can find a similar shape in all theatres today. The orchestra shape and position is very similar to today’s orchestras in modern theatres because they were built......

...Greek Theatre The actual staging in which the actors and chorus perform on is very specific and similar in most ancient theaters in Greece. The orchestra (which translates to “dancing space”) is normally a circular level space positioned in front of the skene. This space is typically used by the chorus for dancing, singing and to interact with the actors whom are positioned by the skene. Early orchestras were made of heard earth patted down however during the classical period some orchestras got paved with marble and other grander materials. In the majority of orchestras positioned was a thymele, or altar. The spectators sat in the theatron (translated to “viewing place”), which is the terraced seating positioned on the sloping part of the hillside. The theatron usually wrapped round the majority of the orchestras giving the audience a better view of the performance. The audience would sit on cushions and boards until the fourth century when many Greek theatrons had marble seats. Behind the stage and the orchestra lies the skene (translated to tent) which is a large building used mostly for the actors to make exits and entrances. The skene also allowed actors to change into different costumes and masks without the audience seeing them. The skene also had a path up to the roof actors could take in order to portray the character of a God, the roof is called theologion (theos= Gods). The theatres were built where the sunlight would hit difectly and cast different shadoews......

...Lauren Martin Elements of Directing Monday 2:30 – 5:20 December 12, 2011 Performance Observation- The Good Soul of Szechuan The fall Theatre Production Workshop presented this year at Marymount Manhattan was the play The Good Soul of Szechuan by Bertolt Brecht and was directed by Dayna Kimball. This play was an interesting choice because of the theory that Brecht uses to write his plays. He believes that the audience should know they are watching a production. This is why he adds musical numbers, over the top characters, and distinctive differences between social classes. Kimball did a great job at following this theory through the characters’ actions, the costumes, and the set. Dayna Kimball obviously followed the tradition that Brecht has set for his plays. She followed Brecht’s technique that the spectator is watching a representation of reality, not actual reality. The audience should be well aware they are watching a production. Kimball made very specific decisions for this technique. She had the cast sing the musical numbers loud and directly to the audience, with the accompaniment clearly shown onstage. The acting involved extreme vocals and over the top actions. Often, the characters would directly talk to audience members and even move around the auditorium. Kimball had the cast sitting onstage while not performing, watching their fellow cast members perform. Kimball picked costumes for the characters that showed the differences in their social class....
