Course research | English homework help

The course presentation is a more formal research project on a specific theatre topic studied or prominent in the field.  The presentation should be on one of the theatrical topics listed below…or elect to pick a topic of your own (with approval by the instructor).

        • Early Theatre: The Greek City Dionysia Festival
        • Japanese Kabuki Theatre
        • Christopher Marlowe: The Other Elizabethan Playwright
        • Lord Chamberlain’s Men
        • London’s Historic Drury Lane Theatre
        • Tennessee Williams and Society’s Outcasts
        • American Musicals by Stephen Sondheim
        • Theatre in Prisons
        • The Tony Awards
        • Stage Musicals on Film

Areas that could be covered by this presentation include (but are not limited by) the following.

        • a general history of the period, event, playwright, etc.
        • staging and production conventions, if applicable
        • plays and/or other related productions produced
        • audience responses to or involvement in theatre

Unlike other assignments in this course, the presentation is not necessarily a normal written essay (though an enhanced written research project would be acceptable).  Think originality and creativity…that is, graphics, charts, images/videos, Powerpoint/Prezi programs, audio or visual presentations, etc. are all accepted and encouraged.  If created in Word, 8-10 page limit is recommended; if created in Powerpoint/Prezi, 14-16 panels is suggested.
