Theatre HS Advanced Design MCA- Task Description: Concept Presentation

Students will create a design concept presentation for a published play. They will write a clear design concept that includes a description and reflection on the play’s theme and respond to questions from peers and teachers. They will include all technical elements of design – lighting, scenic, costume, props, sound, make-up and graphics – to describe the overall design concept. They will create three-to-five minute presentation of the design concept that includes written documentation, visual/audio/physical samples and/or digital artifacts. The purpose of this exercise is not to generate actual designs but to demonstrate the learner's ability to analyze the design requirements of the play and to create an overall concept for expressing the theme of the play through design.
