This is a really critical handout for them to understand the areas on the stage.
The handout covers:
-A map of the stage
(it uses short forms for the, such as "UL, and we will it out together - "upstage left" and so forth...upstage, downstage, left, right, centre)
-The positions to stand on stage
(it uses Homer Simpson for this to help as a memory trigger - it works!)
This is important because the director uses these cues, and they must know it.
TIP - we play a game called "stage sardines" for them to practice this, so fun!
-they all stand together REALLY close like a group of sardines
-I call out stage directions
-they all have to move there as ONE UNIT
(hilarious and helpful!)
