9th Grade Staging a Play: Homeschool Assignment

Instructor: Megan Sarkisian
Students act as the director of a new version of a dramatic work that they have studied. In doing so, they write stage directions describing setting, props, characters, and costuming that support the plot, symbolism and themes of the play.

Assignment Instructions for Students

Choose a dramatic work you have studied. Imagine you are a director creating a new version of that play for the stage. Write the opening stage directions, in which you describe the setting and props, characters and dress. What would the audience see on stage as the curtain rises? Then write a paragraph or two explaining your choices, and how you intended to set the scene. How would your choices contribute to the plot, symbolism and themes of the play?
