Masks and props

Homework: None officially assigned, but students were instructed to practice their lines if they needed to.

Classwork: Finish and perfect masks and any small props that need to be painted, glued, or otherwise crafted.

Free time projects:
1. Draw a portrait of your character, full body, in an appropriate setting, with color.
2. Write a character monologue. Some prompts:
  • a speech talking about something in the play (choose an audience)
  • a news report
  • a one sided telephone conversation
Some etymological fun: monologue comes from the Greek word monologos, meaning "speaking alone." Dialogue, likewise, comes from the Greek dialogos, and means "conversation between two or more people." Both words came to English through Latin and then Old French.
