Hints, Tips, and Tricks
- "Focus on the acting. The set can be very minimal. Make sure your costumes, lighting and sound/music are strong. "
- Tip by Bevan Brunelle, Holyoke High School, Holyoke, Mass.
- "My theatre design class - working remotely - designed the background projection images for each scene. They were very helpful in communicating the audience the shifts in time and location. This was a wonderful ensemble show; due to COVID restrictions, we chose to keep the ensemble visible through the entire show. Actors wore black masks; those who were diseased due to radium poisoning added a bright green masks over their black mask during the scenes in which the audience learned of their infection. "
- Tip by JoBeth Gonzalez, Bowling Green High School, Bowling Green, Ohio
- "This worked very well over Zoom. Casting is important, though, as having one actor play two parts in quick succession is less effective when there are fewer ways to show a change in character. Think about casting more actors, or looking at how an actor's portfolio of characters can be more evenly spread throughout the play."
- Tip by Matt Bentley, Sedos, South Croydon, Surrey, United Kingdom
- "To prepare for the production and for the students to connect more with the characters and story, we watched a short documentary on the radium girls. This helped immensely as the kids were able to play these characters more truthfully."
