Hisses, Boos & Cheers: Or, A Practical Guide to the Planning, Producing and Performing of Melodrama!
Hisses, Boos & Cheers: Or, A Practical Guide to the Planning, Producing and Performing of Melodrama!
By Charles H. Randall and Joan LeGro Bushnell.

 Here is a complete how-to book for successful presentation of old-time melodramas. Randall and Bushnell, authors of a number of acclaimed "mellers," have created a unique guide from historic backgrounds, through tryouts, to curtain calls. It presents detailed tips for the set designer, costume designer and stage technicians, and it offers both directors and actors a truly practical approach to the illusive problem of style. Most importantly, it's a veritable gold mine of information and materials for the musical director, including specific guidelines for the selection and implementation of incidental music. In addition to the original piano scores for numerous suggested character themes and situational highlights, the book offers a resource list of more than 300 musical selections appropriate for background music, olio entertainments and audience sing-alongs. Hisses, Boos & Cheers also presents a complete program for advertising and marketing your melodrama productions. Illustrated. 8 1/2 x 11—147 pages.
