This site is intended to offer new thespians (possibly Junior High Students) general tips, suggestions
and encouragement in various fields. While not providing
definitive answers, it is hoped that the ideas (and opinions) expressed
here will act to spur those who may be experiencing
a momentary lull in creativity. In short, it is hoped that
Theatrical Creativity will be, for a time, your
"muse of fire that ascends the brightest heaven of invention!"
What ignites creative energies more than an examination of that initial
spark? This area is devoted to those wonderful Ancient Greeks whose love
of storytelling led to the birth of Western Theatre. Here you will find
some of their terms and, from the first theatre critic, words of wisdom.
As with many of theatre's facets, writing is not as subjective
as we might first think. Good writing requires solid logic. There are hard
rules that a playwright has to follow because without them, an
audience gets lost. There is also a page here on screenwriting for your Junior/Senior High School Video Dept.(The "Notes" link).
Starting any business involves risk, especially any venture to do with theatre.
There are, after all, many egos involved, but there is also a great lack
of appreciation for the products these companies offer. However, there are
agencies and individuials out there devoted to the business of theatre.
This area offers some suggestions on laying a solid constitution
for theatre companies.
