Tuesday 24th January 2017 – TIE

Theatre In Education Production

In Today’s lesson with Erica we had a meeting with both the TIE Acting groups and discussed the Production side of our shows and the materials and set we would need to source. Unlike other years, our projects will not be getting sponsorship and therefore we have no formal budget, so the majority of our props, costumes and set would have to be self sourced. Luckily, my group had already looked into these elements and had started to source materials for our production ourselves and started to use them in rehearsal whenever possible. Nevertheless, in the session I formally accumulated a list of all the materials we needed for our production and a note by it as to where we would be sourcing these and any significant extra details.
