Bulrusher is the first production that I personally have been involved with at the University of Southern Mississippi. For this reason, I was really excited about the production from the very beginning. However, when I first read the script, I was a bit disappointed. The script moves rather slowly, lacks action, and explores its themes mainly through dialogue. Initially, I found the script difficult to understand, particularly due to the sporadic use of a virtually unknown colloquial language, and I was somewhat concerned about whether or not the audience was going to understand the themes behind the play. However, after the final curtain fell, I can truly say that I enjoyed the production and that the production team was fairly successful
The colors and lighting are very unchanging much like the town Endora. The only exception is when there are strong emotions within the film. There is a warm glow of lighting by the sunlight or fire whenever there is a time of love, be it brotherly or in a romantic way. During the melancholy times of the story, the lighting is either dim when it relates to death, but when a character is feels lost in their emotions the director
As death is one of the major themes of this play, the playwright has written it so that the focal points are upon objects that are used to commit and/or hide the character’s acts of murder, therefore associating these objects with the idea of death. To show these elements, the designers can make the door be in contrast to the rest of the set, the window to be large in proportions and the wine bottle and glasses to be embellished. For lighting, the lights from the window can fall well upon the seat, showing it to be brighter than the rest of the room, and casting the door into even more shadow for emphasis. Lastly, for costumes, gloves can be
In closing, you can see that music and the character 's expressions affected the movie by focusing on the mood of the story and demonstrating some of the important things that the people in the community don 't have. Music was used to show the mood of the story throughout the movie. It was also one of the things that the people in the community didn 't get to enjoy. While it had a major role in the movie, it was only a minor role in the book. Music wasn 't really mentioned in the novel.
A particularly effective element of the production was the use of costume. The costumes exposed the time period, transporting the audience back to 1981, immediately involving me in the story. Costume represented the social class the characters belonged to. Mr and Mrs Lyons were rich and had a high social status, their costume established their character; Mr. Lyons was wearing a suit and Mrs. Lyons wore tights and uniform.
Our Town Play Response Our Town takes place in the early 1900’s in the small town of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire. Thornton Wilder, the play writer, is trying to show the importance of the little things in life. Throughout the opening two acts he builds up a scenario, which allows the third act of the play to show that we as humans sprint through life oblivious to what is actually happening around us. Wilder, throughout the play, tries to show our lives as something that we often take for granted.
The costumes used helped to further who the characters were and I found them to be very appropriate and exactly how you would imagine an elf to be dressed or how a New Yorker would be dressed. I believed that only the New York characters costumes were time specific, while the elves costumes are timeless since what we imagine elves to look like doesn’t change. The staging of this play
Her voluminous costume also makes the Wicked Witch seem larger and more frightening than she is. Seeing these two characters in two very different costumes before they even speak a word helps the viewers to already get a feel for who they are and what is maybe to
The changes in lighting creates the feeling as if this is happening in two different places when in reality the characters are quite close together on the stage. The characters in this scene are coming to terms with their realities, and the lighting not only highlights the action, but also represents their own process of
The costumes that fascinated me the most were the ones used in War of the Nerds and In and Out. I found the costumes in War of the Nerds to be innovative and comical especially the lightsabers, wookiee, dwarf, and hobbit costumes, they added a lighthearted touch to the play. The costumes and lighting in the play, In and Out appended to the overall theme of the play, the schoolgirl costume made the audience acquire knowledge of who the actress was trying to be and the red lighting gave the audience a chilling feel. Mr. Onorato, Mr. Murphy, and anyone else that helped develop these plays did an extraordinary
The music was playing while Morgan and Robert were making conversation though their voices were overlapped by the voice of the music. The music was composed basically for the movie to pass the motive for romantic relationships between Morgan versus Robert and Mita versus Hill. Music played a vital role in the movie due to the reason that it helped to attract the attention of the audience. It was attractive because characters such as Mita and Hill were arrogant and demanding in their past relationships hence they were not expected to fit any normal and peaceful relationships. However, at last they were brought together and eventually rhyme with each other very well.
