Shame: Its Place In Life And American Drama, Lauren Elisabeth Terry Jan 2019

Shame: Its Place In Life And American Drama, Lauren Elisabeth Terry

Honors Theses

I spent my twenty-second birthday driving six hours by myself through the back roads of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. I was traveling to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to interview at the University of Southern Mississippi for their MFA Theatre Directing program. As someone who loves birthdays, spending this time by myself with only my nerves to accompany me was difficult. However, it was during this trip that I stumbled across something that would change my life.

Leading up to that trip to Hattiesburg were years of theatre involvement. On a whim, in eighth grade, I auditioned for a production of White Christmas ...

Accessibility In The Theatre, Allison Austin Jan 2018

Accessibility In The Theatre, Allison Austin

Honors Theses

In the fall of 2016, I received the opportunity to participate in the Chicago Semester. Through this program, I was able to participate in an internship at a theatre in Chicago and get credit hours from that instead of academic classes. I interned at Lifeline Theatre in Chicago's northernmost neighborhood, Rogers Park. Most of what I did was box office work, but I also worked on financial reports, marketing, and a little bit of everything it takes to run a theatre. Of all the things I learned during the semester, the most important one was the need for accessible ...


Collaborative Storytelling With Different Artistic Mediums, Andrew Martin Jan 2018

Collaborative Storytelling With Different Artistic Mediums, Andrew Martin

Honors Theses

I play a card game called Magic: The Gathering. The tasks of the art director of the cards and the creative process they utilize is fascinating to me. Through researching my favorite card game and through the creation and design of Painting the Roses Red, a theatre production at Ouachita Baptist University that took place in February of 2018, I have found several similarities between the art direction of Magic and the direction of Painting the Roses Red. In the following, I will compare the two artistic mediums, and describe my design process for the Cheshire Cat puppet for Painting ...


Acting In A Global Context: Characterization From The Physical Context Of Shakespeare's Spaces, Anna Joie Valdez Jan 2018

Acting In A Global Context: Characterization From The Physical Context Of Shakespeare's Spaces, Anna Joie Valdez

Honors Theses

The proposition that the Elizabethan theatre space, with its lack of a "fourth wall" the delivery of Shakespeare's works is nothing new. From a technical standpoint, scholars have also suggested that analysis of the spoken text implies stage directions for both actors and technicians. These approaches are still used by directors at the New Globe in London, England, and are a heavily emphasized point in the curriculum of the Globe Association. Actors are encouraged to embrace the intimate proximity of the audience and the configuration of the balconies as a major influence in their delivery of the text.
