About the Script (Three Versions
of the Script):
- Level I (least challenging).
The Level I
version is the least challenging, technically. This version of the
script is intended for producing the play with a limited number of
background effects only. The background effects used may include such
things as music, wind, rain, crickets, etc. These effects do not
require precise synchronization with the dialog. Some Level I versions
have altered vocabulary for easier reading, but because only the most
unusual or difficult words have been eliminated, it may still be
necessary for some students to work on pronunciation and definitions.
This is as it should be, for an activity without challenge has little
purpose in the classroom.
- Level II (more challenging). This
version is slightly more challenging than Level I; it is intended for
producing the play with limited equipment (2 boom boxes) and most
include some manual sound effects (SFX). The recorded SFX tracks used in
Level II scripts are mainly background effects that do not require
precise synchronization with the dialog.
- Level III (challenging technical
technical needs of Level III scripts require precise synchronization
between the recorded SFX and dialog. The intended use of this version is
creating a recording of the play. Effects requiring a high degree of
teamwork, such as footstep and door sequences, are included. Manual SFX
are also included. Level III versions may require as many as three CD
players. Level III scripts may also be presented for an audience as a
radio drama stage presentation.
