This past weekend, my daughter and I attended two plays at our local high schools: The Women of Lockerbie at Salinas High School and An Evening of Student Directed Shows at Everett Alverez High School. I was pleased to see my own students at both performances, clearly enjoying their evenings.
On the way home, my daughter and I chatted about each production:
- What did you think about the set?
- What was your favorite costume?
- Could you hear everyone?
- How was the audience etiquette?
- Did you understand the plays?
While my daughter doesn’t have to write a reflection, students in the NSHS Theatre Arts classes sure do. Here’s the process:
- See a show: any show that is a theatrical performance but concerts or sporting events don’t count.
- Save your program or your ticket.
- Pull out your questions and write the answers in complete sentences. It’s on page 22 in your notebook or find it here.
- Remember to write two sentences for each question and you only need to answer 10 questions.
- Attach your ticket or program.
- Turn it in ASAP.
Remember: no review for the semester = Incomplete grade…
If you are a performer in a play you still have to write your reflection. Be sure to save your program and highlight your name!
