Dramaturgy
“Breathing Life Into a Script”
This drama unit introduces students to the theatre concept of dramaturgy and the process involved in making dramaturgical decisions about a script or production. By the end of the unit, students will be able to
•Recognize and understand the theater concept, dramaturgy.
•Appreciate dramaturgical decisions that have been made by
film directors.
•Understand the director’s role in the theatrical process.
•Understand and apply the creative process to making
dramaturgical decisions about a script.
Students will do a film study of “Romeo and Juliet,” comparing the dramaturgical decisions made in Franco Zeffirelli’s film to Baz Luhrmann’s film and both of these dramatic productions to the musical “Westside Story.” Then all students will be given the same script from which to make their own dramaturgical decisions. Students will work in groups on the script and will then present their performances to the class. The class will then discuss the different dramaturgical decisions each group made and their effectiveness.
