Let's Put on a Show!: A Beginner's Theatre Handbook for Young Actors by Gibbs,Adrea Gibbs

Every young would-be thespian needs a guidebook like this to learn the basics of theatre. Everything! The "what, " "where, " "when" and "how" of staging a show is included in this handy text. Each page is illustrated for quick and easy comprehension of theatre essentials. Every beginning participant in a play production should have a copy of this book to learn theatre vocabulary and what they can do to make a show work. It covers scripting, casting, staging, sets and scenery, props, costumes and makeup. Als included are the basics of backstage and technical particulars. Everything will go smoothly and everyone will have more fun if each student starts with their own copy of this enjoyable and informative text. Contents: First Things First, What is a Show?. The Stage, Who's Who in the Theatre, Technical Things, Sets and Scenery, Props, Puppets, Costumes, Makeup, Auditions and Rehearsals, The Show!, Applause, Glossary.
Oh, what I would have given to have had a book like this when I was growing up! Funny thing is, this book (although geared for young people) could be indespensable for anyone just starting out in theatre. It is chock full of what putting on a show is all about and the glossary alone should be a part of every theatrical participant's reference library. Everyone should buy several of these books and pass them out to the children in your's a wonderful way to start children on the road to doing theatre right.
This book is great for young people who are interested in all areas of performance. In an age where schools are slowly getting rid of the arts, it is extremely important for parents to take charge and introduce theatre to ther young ones! As a performer, I enjoyed both reading this book and working with the author on several shows. She is a highly talented performer and director, and she explains all aspects of theatre very well in this book. A MUST for any child intrigued by the theatre!
