Putting on a Show: Theater for Young People
An award-winning children's playwright tells all for kids. Using several of her plays, which have toured in Canada and the United States, as the centerpiece, Kathleen McDonnell talks about the history of theater and drama, with a who's who of players, including descriptions of the roles of actors, directors, playwrights, choreographers, producers, designers, and more. The book contains complete text and stage directions for four of Kathleen's best-known plays, Loon Boy, Ezzie's Emerald, Foundlings and The Seven Ravens. Photographs of performances, programs and playbills enrich this wonderful learning tool and fabulous gift.
