I was able to see all the important people that make plays go as smoothly as they do like the band, musical crew, usher, and audience. I noticed that it is very important for the performer to deliver the script correctly and make it more realistic in order to capture the audience attention. Another factor that completed the great show is how the casts interprets and communicates the role through their emotion and made the audience feel as if they are part of the performance. The performers accomplished their role when they expressed their feeling and did not make any mistake to ruin a great play. One of many aspects of a play is performance of the characters.
My favorite characters were the dynamic duo, Cogsworth and Lumiere. Whenever either one of them or both of them waltzed onto the stage, I knew there would be laughter rippling through the audience. Another hilarious character was Lefou. The actor played a convincing role as Gaston’s henchman and doesn’t mind getting beat up a couple of times. The voices of the main characters, Belle and the Beast were amazing!
The stage set up was Unique but it complimented the play well due to the walking around and the crowd Interaction. I definitely think all the parts of the plot were essential to tell the full story. But, just like any play, there were bits and pieces that could have been left out and it Wouldn’t have changed the performance. Such as the role of the engineer who sat up top On the banister the whole play. I did not think she had a significant role.
Another thing we found challenging, was actually working in the group itself! Initially, it was fine because we had quickly established which one of us would be which character in the performance. However soon after there were problems with spacing, which meant we argued a lot with each other and with other groups! This is something a dancer must consider in order to improve in their group performance, because good co-operation with all the dancers means a smoother performance. Probably the easiest thing our group found, which overall really helped us improve in our performance, was lifts.
His passion shows up in every movie, every play, every television show that he delivers to his public audience. You can tell he is doing what he loves and he loves what he is doing. Finally you must be gifted and that means to give more than you receive. I believe Tyler gives a lot of time, money, opportunity and dedication to what he attempts to deliver to his fans. Tyler has given so many young actors/actresses opportunity to work and that is very important to help others and that is what makes him gifted.
Million Dollar Baby The movie ‘Million Dollar Baby’ is a very emotional and very intense movie that just takes your heart away. It was very good and well made. I couldn’t stop watching it and just had to finish till the end. The characters were great and everyone acted out their character well. The writer and director did a splendid job making this and doing it the right way to make it perfect.
After learning so much about the various elements, concepts, and dedication that was put into the production of Nicholas Rzhevsky’s play, “Robeson,” it was extraordinarily intriguing to see the concepts come to life. The storyline of play effectively conveyed to the audience the whirlwind of ups and downs that were a part of what defined Robeson, in a unique and entertaining way. The inclusion of various non-traditional elements and a presentational set design in order to convey this “whirlwind,” successfully captured the attention of the audience and held it there. One of the most essential elements of the play’s success in delivering the concept was the design of the set. The simplistic, glowing white design of the set allowed for minimal distractions and centered the focus on the whirlwind of events taking place on stage.
RUBY MOON In Footprint Theatre’s performance of Ruby Moon they successfully managed to merge both the ordinary real world and the strange and unexpected into the same performance space. This was made possible with the use of light, sound and music, objects and furniture and costumes. Watching the performance of Ruby Moon helped to clarify any questions or uncertainties I had when reading the script beforehand. The use of light helped to set the atmosphere which was appropriate for the scene taking place, however, the lights used usually gave the scene an ominous feeling to match the absurd feeling to the performance. The use of light was particularly effective in the scene with Sid the clown in which he uses a dim lamp to light the room.
As, for example when the tone became dark and mysterious, the lighting seemed dimmed to the audience, although the lighting actually never dimmed, but stayed the same throughout the play, your imagination was so focused on the characters powerful performance that the lighting, nor lack of backdrops were problem you. You were drawn into the play, and watching it as if you were there, with Faustus and Mephastophilis, or the Elizabethan audience, watching the original production. The props were used in a cleverly creative manner. In both the serious and comic scenes, different props, big and small were used to amplify the text and actions the actors were carrying out. The Globe’s stage itself was very effective with several trap doors, which were used for entrances and exits of actors and props.
