Language & Style: Dont we all speak English? The way the words are put together to create the story. The way the words are put together to define the character. Some characters speak in a dialect which is difficult to read when spelled the way the playwright wants it to sound; however, it is easier for actors to interpret. Conversational style/language is informal language; the way most people usually speak Iambic pentameter is a meter in poetry found in classic Greek poetry and Shakespeares writing. It is a line containing five sets of two syllables each, with the emphasis always on the second syllable (daDUM, daDUM, daDUM, daDUM, daDUM).

Some theaters use flats with curtains, wood, cardboard, Styrofoam, paper mache and a variety of materials; creativity is the key
Sound: Is that why you can hear actors talk on stage? Most scripts call for sound effects or mood music. If not a director or sound designer may create music for mood to be played before, during or after a performance. In todays theater, hearing the play is important. Microphones must be managed from a sound booth. Knowing how to run a mixer board and understanding amplification are important skills needed by sound designers/runners.

Make-Up Does make-up make people look better? Enhances the natural features of the face so that lighting does not wash out the color of the face. Creates the character Special Effects make-up can be used; putty can be used to build up noses, create scars; fake blood can enhance a look; a twenty-year old person can be made-up to look eighty-five; hair lines can be soaped out to create a bald spot or receding hairline.
