Worksheet for Theatregoing

production. It does not call for extensive information; rather, it will help you jot down quick impressions that you

sheets are meant to help you accumulate information. Remember: Do not try to write an essay or even any fully
developed statements while you are watching the performance; that would defeat the whole purpose of
