Theatre / Theater Review (Junior School)
Template| Years 7 - 9
Save yourself time and help students write a Play Review with this 3 page template (excluding cover page). After seeing a performance, have students complete the guided sections to discuss plot, technical elements, acting and overall thoughts.
Note: Due to the different preferred spellings of theatre / theater, I have omitted the term and instead use "play" "show" "performance".
SENIOR STUDENTS? I have an advanced 4 page version available for senior students, structured to assist them with crafting their own detailed play review. Use the senior PLAY REVIEW NOTES to help students capture their thoughts and feelings after a performance and to then write a play review. After seeing a play, students complete the guided sections to discuss plot, direction, technical elements, and acting. Also includes links to 3 newspaper review sites (US and UK reviews but suitable for all to see structure and style) so that students can read some professional reviews before writing their own.
