By: Crystal

   Are you trying to put on a play? Well this article can make your life easier! There are actually a lot of kinds of plays. Keep reading to learn more.

   Drama comes in many kinds. Drama includes plays, TV shows, musical theater and many more. If you are choosing a play, you can choose between tragedy, comedy or historical. Tragedy is a play that something unfortunate happens and the ending is sad. A comedy is the complete opposite. A historical is about something that has happened in the past. Another part is costumes. Costumes have to fit the characters. Like for Cinderella, you can’t make her wear a gown when she’s cleaning.

    To jazz up your play, you can add some songs or special effects. You may consider some plays of Shakespeare and other famous playwrights. Simple stories can also become a play. With some simple adjustments, you can turn it into your own.  If you like writing stories, you can write your own play! Just add some actions, effects, lines and …..presto! you’ve got a play. As you can see, choosing a play is actually quite easy.

     If you are acting, you need to have emotion. Emotion and actions are what brings the character to life. You can’t just recite a whole line with a robotic voice. It would be boring and the audience would fall to sleep. In conclusion, you have to be sure you add feeling to your lines.

    In conclusion, plays are easy to make if you know the ropes. If you have a play to make or acting part, you must have emotion!
