Theatrical Role HOT!
The conception of theatrical performance as leisure experience, instrumentalized by means of a workshop of theatrical exercises, offers promising results. It was observed that the exercises used in a theater workshop offer differentiated subjective experiences with respect to freedom and satisfaction. In other words, in an intervention carried out with theatrical exercises, each activity receives a specific assessment that must be taken into account. Regarding the results of the study carried out, the relevance of exercises such as group discussion (as noted by Strasberg and Hethmon, 1968), obstacles (Knébel, 1996) and relaxation (insufficiently worked on as a personal experience according to Kleiber, 2000) should be highlighted. These stand in contrast to the scores obtained for the exercises focusing on objectives, which, although they were rated lower (within the set of workshop activities), offer the opportunity to experiment with directionality in this line of work.
It is worth highlighting the relevance of the instruments used to obtain this data. Thanks to the combined application of TB (in line with Neulinger, 1986) and TST (originally proposed by Kuhn and McPartland, 1967) to theatrical performance, it is possible to specify relationships that deserve consideration in future workshops and interventions.
The Artistic director develops and oversees the implementation of the artistic vision and focus of a production and often the overall programme presented by a theatre. Depending on the size and style of the theatre management this role maybe combined with that of the Chief Executive. The artistic director may also direct individual productions.
These are the key creatives who alongside the Director or create the setting for the production, allowing the audience to believe they are in a different place or time. Sometimes the different designer roles overlap with one another or with technical roles, depending on the size of the production. They are generally freelance roles that are hired for a specific performance although some theatres will recruit for long term positions.
The primary role of the Deputy Stage Manager is to call the show. Following the prompt book (the full script along with the prompts and cues for the performers as well as lighting, sound and scene changes), they talk to the department operators and technicians over a head set to co-ordinate the show. They will also use a public address system to summon the actors from their dressing rooms and to co-ordinate with front of house when the performance is about to start.
Assistant Stage Managers are the most junior members of the team, organising props and assisting with set and costume changes. The may also cover roles such as Dressers and Mechanists. Other duties include preparing the rehearsal room and stage.
Every venue has a Technical Manager although this role may be combined with operational roles depending on the size of the venue. They are responsible for the up-keep and maintenance of the technical equipment for the venue. They may also act as liaison with visiting companies providing them with technical information including venue plans and safety requirements when using the venue.
The Western tradition of theatre has its origins all the way back in ancient Greece and Rome. The Greeks started their theatre practice with tragic plays, which started around 532 BC. The problem was that Greek culture put women in a position of being inferior to men, so womens' role in society was very restricted in many ways. Women were not allowed to be on the stage because it was considered "dangerous." Men played male characters as well as female characters! "The Greeks believed that allowing women to perform publicly would be too dangerous and that having men portray them neutralized the danger." (Source) So what about the Romans? Well, the Romans had a similar view of women, which made it impossible for them to make it onto the stage. But over time, Roman plays did start to have a few female actors.
In the 17th century in Europe, something great happened: Opera! The great thing about this type of musical theatre was that female singers were included in it. This did not please the strict Christian church, though. Their belief was that it was impure and improper for women to be on the stage. This is why castrati would sometimes sing parts that required a higher voice. These high-pitched men were an alternate choice to women, but that didn't completely stop women from being opera singers. Then, still in the 17th century, the English Restoration period occurred. One big step forward for women in theatre was Aphra Behn, who dared to go against cultural norms by becoming the first professional female playwright. Until then, it was unheard of for women to make a living writing plays! As for female actors, they sometimes played male characters, even though the opposite had happened in the past: "One might expect the admission of women on stage to be related to a demand for greater realism, but the actual result was not only that men and women got to play roles appropriate to their gender, but that the impersonation of the opposite sex could now go both ways." (Source)
As the years passed, women in theatre were gaining ground slowly but surely, despite the trends and traditions that told women no. This happened in early American theatre as well. There were female playrights, females acting on stage, plays that gave female characters a prominent role, and also, many females in the theatre audience. "Women helped change the dynamic of theater in the second half of the 19th century and were directly responsible for the rise in its popularity." (Source) While men still had a larger presence in the theatre world, females did some pretty interesting things. One notable example was Victorian-era Burlesque theatre, during the 19th century in both England and America. These flashy, sexy, hilarious shows were parodies of classic stories. Women were often featured in masculine roles. Playing crazy characters and reversing gender norms definitely did not create a respectable repuation for these women... but this was an important step for women because it allowed women to rebelliously break free of many restrictive social expectations.
Many of these same concepts were to form the core of 17th century English gender dynamics. During the time of Shakespeare and the reigns of Queen Elizabeth I and King James I, English ideas of sex and gender, the legal rights of women and the social expectations of femininity all played a significant role in the way that theatre was performed, the stories it told and who told them. In addition to other legal restrictions on the rights of women, there was considerable social pressure on women to behave according to specific social roles. Women were expected to be subservient, quiet and homebound, with their primary ambitions entirely confined to marriage, childbirth and homemaking; granted, social status and economic class played into what degree these expectations manifested, with the chief example being Queen Elizabeth I herself.

Hillary Clinton has held many high-profile roles, including first lady, a U.S. senator representing New York, and U.S. secretary of state. Most recently, of course, Clinton was the Democratic candidate in the 2016 presidential election.
In April and May 2022, theater audiences in Arkansas can hear Clinton's latest venture, where she will voice the role of The Giant in the musical "Into the Woods," staged by the Arkansas Repertory Theater.
According to the theatrical news publication Playbill, it's most likely that the theater company will use a recording of Clinton's voice for the role instead of having her backstage for every performance during the play's run, from April 19 - May 15.
For the purposes of NHSMTA, a Qualifying Role in an Approved Musical is a role in which the character has a name, provides a vehicle for the actor or actress to demonstrate the ability to deliver the exceptional performance of a solo song and the ability to interact with other leading and featured performers in scenes and / or songs.
Each year, in consultation with the major licensing houses, NHSMTA updates the list of Qualifying Roles and Approved Musical titles made available for high school licensing. As of August 1 each year, no roles will be removed from the Qualifying Roles List for the upcoming program year. However, because appeals are made and approved throughout the year, the list of Qualifying Roles continues to be updated with additions. Your RAP representative should consult this list periodically to ensure that you have the most current list, which will be fully updated for the year by April 15, 2023. There is an internal process by which Regional Awards Programs may submit an appeal for a show or a role to be added to the list.
