A brilliant introduction to live theatre, focussing on successful productions for family audiences at the National Theatre. Aimed at young people, the large-format book is beautifully designed in the form of a scrapbook containing colour photographs, posters and explanatory text including tips from actors, artistic and technical staff.
Topics covered include the history of theatre, the play, casting, rehearsals, set, costume, wigs and make-up, sound and music and a handy glossary.
The book will appeal to children from key stage 2 and upwards as well as teenagers including theatre arts students. This would make a great gift as well as a handy addition to any drama studio or school library.
