Arts Toolkit: Drama Video Clips

Bringing a Theatrical Work to Television



This segment explores the many technical preparations involved in taping a performance. The clip includes scenes of television crew members stringing cable and setting cameras as well as interviews with the lighting designer, audio supervisors, and director for the production, a Stage One performance of Wind in the Willows.

Suggested Uses:

  • Show in conjunction with the performance segments from Wind in the Willows on Performance Excerpts.
  • Discuss the preparations for taping a theatrical performance. (Additional information can be found at the web site for KET’s production of Liz’s Circus Story.)
  • Have students list the jobs mentioned in the segment, then research additional information about each job.
  • As a class, plan how you would videotape a class performance. What activities would be necessary? See how many ways you can come up with that do not involve onstage performance.
