Think About Theatre

You saw the HTY show Pinocchio. Maybe you’ve seen other plays, too. Now, what have you discovered about theater?

  • What do actors do with their bodies and voices to help tell a story?
  • How do the technical elements help tell a story? (Lights, Costumes, Props, Setting)
  • How do costumes help the actors play their characters?
  • How does the design of the set help the audience better know the story?
  • What is the role of an audience when watching a play?
  • How is your role as audience different when you watch movies, television, or live theatre?
  • How does a play help us understand our world better?
