What choices can you make to stage your production of "This Girl" that work with your group's concept? Think about the acting, the look, the sounds of the play and how your concept is going to work within the play.

Set Designer, Lighting Designer and Costume Designer:  You will need at least 5 images for the research in your area of design. The images need to show the main ideas for your overall design. You can also include ideas for specific scenes or characters.

How does your design support the concept for the group? How will your design idea work with the other elements your group discussed?

Sound Designer: For students who are assigned sound designer, you can create a digital document with links to sound effects or music chosen for your group. You will need a minimum of 5 song/sounds for the design concept of "This Girl."  The sound design document will consist of:  1.
