Design Your Own ‘Model’ Box
Model boxes are used in theatre design to explain and show your ideas for how you want the stage to look for a performance. This design needs to be adapted as the show goes along in order to give the audience the feeling of where the story is happening. What does it feel like to be there?
A half term challenge!
We would like you to show us how you would design a model box to show your ideas for a favourite show. Maybe one you have been to at the theatre or one you would like to go to. When you have completed your box, please do send us a photograph that we can share on our Facebook page.
A shoe box is ideal to use for your box and then look around for scraps of paper, fabric, small boxes, string there might be items in your recycling box you can use anything that helps you create the scene you are imagining. Please include the name of your chosen show in your design.
The image we have included shows what a model box might look like! We have use crumpled paper for rocks and sweet wrappers for desert grasses. Here’s a video by Dramatize to help you create your Model box, if you feel like you need some guidance.
Have lots of fun making yours!
