THTR 100: Plays and Playwrights (S. Tabaka): Assignment #5


  • Due:  April 22, 2018 at 12M.
  • Don't cite Wikipedia!
  • Always italicize the name of the play.
  • Directors and actors are not your friends:  respectfully refer to them as "Mr." or "Ms.".


Heads up:

You will be using these boards for your final presentation!

Don't forget!

  • Cite your sources
  • State Title of play and year on assignment


Assignment #5: Research Boards

Create research boards for either costumes or the set(s) for your production.

Research boards may be in one of the following formats:

  1. Poster board
  2. word doc submitted via dropbox
  3. Pinterest

Additionally, one picture must be a piece of classical artwork (not necessarily from the time period of your play) that conveys the mood your play strives to create.  This artwork must be found on the CAMIO database and cited correctly.  Describe the mood you feel the artwork conveys.  This artwork may not be something you have drawn nor may it be a photograph.  Ask yourself: 

  • Does this picture remind me of the play? 
  • Does it feel like the play?


Database suggestion:

CAMIO is the catalog of art museum images online.  A growing online collection of art images--covering the complete range of artistic expression--from prehistoric to contemporary times. Prominent museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts are represented.
