Mid Term Instructions Theatre I and II

Lyric Performance Project Name_____________________________________________
Directions: You will be taking a song and stripping it down to the bare lyrics. You will perform it as a dramatic piece (monologue) by adding emotion and inflection in your voice and body movements, while also taking out the sing-song nature of the lyrics. This will be done individually.
Monologue: presented by a single character, most often to express their mental thoughts aloud, though sometimes also to directly address another character or the audience.
Step 1: Choose song lyrics. Please keep in mind that these lyrics MUST be school appropriate meaning: no cursing, references to sex, drugs, or violence. You can edit out explicit lyrics, but if the theme of the song is inappropriate you will need to choose a different song. This song must be approved by me before proceeding.
After it has been approved handwrite/type the lyrics out. This is a grade.
Step 2: Rehearsal; use this time to memorize your song, take out the rhyming aspect of the song, and turn it into a dramatic piece through voice and body movement.
Step 3: Memorization Test (10/10)
Step 4: Roses before Thorns (10-11/12)
Step 5: Final Performance (10 12/13)
