Quick Overview

A great photocopiable pack to give to students either before or after seeing a live theatre performance.


Do your students have to produce a response to live theatre, whether in an exam or for internal assessment? If so, this photocopiable pack will help.

This is a great pack to give to students either before or after seeing a live theatre performance. It will ensure students can confidently and critically analyse a production in terms of its acting skills, spatial positioning, movement, gestures, actor-audience relationships, directorial intentions, design concepts, lighting and costumes.

It is jam-packed full of student-friendly explanatory sheets, showing students both what to look out for in a theatre production and how to critically evaluate it afterwards. Students could work through the entire booklet straight after a production, ensuring their evaluations are thorough and precise. The booklet contains examples of how to evaluate and write about directorial decisions and space for students to record their own responses and notes. The book shows students how to record their evaluations of specific moments in the production or an actor’s contribution to a specific scene as well as showing students the difference between critically evaluating theatre, or just merely describing the theatre seen.

It is a great booklet to complete and work through after a trip to the theatre, whether as a class, or individually. It will provide students with a set of thorough and critical records about their theatre experience.
