Scene Preparation & Memorization

The Prompt Book Project

Work Time

Put your essay draft away for today and have a group discussion of the Prompt Book project. This project will be handed in on the day that you perform your scene. This is the last time you will have in the full class format to have your questions answered.

As you review with your class, keep in mind the following.

  • Your scene for the Prompt Book project is the same scene that contains your memorized passage.
  • Your Prompt Book needs to include at least three of the major prompt book elements, such as script, blocking, and a copy of the ground plan for the stage.
  • Be as specific as you can! If you are chosen as a director, your actors will be relying on your directions.
  • Your Prompt Book is due on the day you perform your memorized lines for the class.
