This 4 page handout is structured to assist students write their own detailed theatre review. Use the PLAY REVIEW NOTES to guide students in capturing their thoughts and feelings after a theatre performance to then write a play review. After seeing a play, students complete the guided sections to discuss plot, direction, technical elements, and acting. Also includes links to 3 newspaper review sites (US and UK reviews but suitable for all to see structure and style) so that students can read some professional reviews before writing their own.
*Note* Due to the different preferred spellings of theatre / theater, I have omitted the term and instead use "play" "show" "performance".
I also have junior Play Review handout available (3 page handout excluding the cover page). After seeing a performance, have students complete the guided sections to discuss plot, technical elements, acting and overall thoughts.
