  • Hallmark's Cedar Cove: Character Analysis

    than I had been in the past. There is a dynamic charisma that I first witnessed from the moment I saw her depiction of Grace Sherman, and I think that is a substantial reason why so many fans are drawn to her and stick with her for life. Exceptional actors come and go. Beauty queens appear and fade. Dancers, singers, and so much more grace our screens, both small and big, and the vast majority are unfortunately commonplace.

  • Women In Elizabethan Theatre

    Sources say that women were not allowed to act in theatre productions because they were uneducated compared to men. Playwrights, audiences, and mostly everyone, feared that due to this education gap, women wouldn’t know what to do when they got on stage, which could potentially ruin the entire production.

  • The Last Night Of The Ballyhoo Play Analysis

    In the Last Night of the ballyhoo play by Alfred Uhry, the whole production of the play was beyond magnificent for a first-time student who has never attended a play before. The different scenes and stage production was very up to par and the characters were very outstanding. There are a few complaints I would like to critique to make the production kind of more valuable but overall, I enjoyed the play tremendously. Starting off, each character plays a significant role in the production theme.…

  • The Importance Of Communication In Deaf Theatre

    plan I was given the challenge of finding a way to help the actors remember the order of the play and their entrance and exits.
