1

Create an informative, theatre-related tik tok (vocabulary, dos and don’ts, superstitions, things actors say, things directors say, things stage managers say, etc.)

Play your favorite movie scene (without swearing in it) on mute and do all the voices for it [This could be done with or without internet - we just won’t be able to see it]. They don’t even need to be the actual lines – make them up (seeBad Lip Reading on YouTube)!

Research any Broadway show - how long it ran/has been running, summarize the plot, listen to the music, etc. If you can, find a video of the production and write a review.

Create your best Apocalypse costume using only what’s in your house - submit a pic and written description of some of the features of your costume.

2

Look up some of the Broadway shows that are dark right now, or some of the local productions that got cancelled or postponed. Recreate the poster using yourself and what you’ve got at home. This could turn into Pinterest epic fails but that’s part of the fun of it!

Duo Scenes in which  you play both characters! Scripts can be easily found online, or write your own! To take it further, you could focus on something specific (voice change, body language, facial expression, etc). This could possibly even happen with a partner via Zoom or Facetime.

Watch at least two different versions of Hamlet’s “To be or not to be…” monologue. (Examples:Gibson, Branaugh, Hawke, Olivier, Cumberbatch) Compare and contrast in one page.

Write a monologue about how your life is different now - try to include things that are still ok, or even better now, as well as frustrations and struggles.

3

Find a piece of art in your home. Write a short scene based on it. To take it further, send it to two other friends and have them perform it over Zoom or Facetime.

Find, rehearse, and perform a monologue. If you can, record your performance. A place to start: Monologue Archive.

If you were going to work backstage on a play, which job would you most like to have? Why? Write a paragraph.

If there was a play about what was happening in the world right now, who would some of the characters be? What would the set look like? Give it a title and draw a poster to advertise your school’s production of that play.
