Hi there. Just found your site now whilst searching for possible teaching materials for Musical Theatre for highschool students. My drama knowledge is rusty and I’m having some challenges in finding out how it best fits as a style into one of the dramatic forms. Is it simply eclectic? Is it an extension of both naturalism and non-naturalism/realism? Or is it within spectacle? Does it depend on the choice of musical itself? e.g. P.T. Barnum’s The Greatest Show…

Hi, I’m a year 12 drama student at the beginning of the process of creating my solo performance. I was wondering if you had any more details or explanations regarding the use of exaggerate movement (my prescribed convention), as I’m a bit stuck on ideas of incorporating it into the performance (as our class hasn’t really focused on it at all). The way my mind works is I love examples in order to get a better idea of what I could incorperate in an effective way, so any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much.

Dear Justin, Blast from the past. It’s me Sue Bourke. I am tutoring Namatjira (Rankin) up here in Northern NSW. I have access to Act one on Vimeo but can’t find Act 2. Is there any chance you have a link to it you could share with me?

Hi Justin,
I’m struggling to find similar lists for Theatre of Cruelty, Surrealism and Poor Theatre… can you point me in the right direction? or do you have any resources you are willing to share?
Your Brecht lists are fantastic 🙂

Theatre of Cruelty

– Assaulting the senses
– Creating a dream world
– Involving the Audience
– The skill of the actor
– Deliberate cruelty
– Improvising the play

I found these in Living Drama 4e by Bruce Burton and found the students were able to understanding them quite well.
