About StageFright Industrial Theatre
In Industrial Theatre, the play will be divided into short modules or scenarios, each representing a particular heading and each heading covering an aspect/s of the issues or key messages. Each of these modules is an individual 'sketch' enacted by our Professional Performers who move in and out of their characters. Our Plays will have a Beginning (presenting the issue) , Middle (showing the effect of the issue) and an End (providing possible solutions to the issue).
In order to make it accessible and entertaining, there will be a large amount of audience participation. Through audience volunteers taking part in scenarios, impromptu sing along songs.
At various intervals, audiences will be encouraged to come on-stage and role-play some of the characters in an attempt to change the course of those characters lives towards their own ideal endings, this will stamp a sense of ownership in the minds of the audience whereby they will feel that a particular character conquered because of their inputs.
Our play will utilize a lot of humor and entertainment rather than didactic lecturing as an approach. The characters will illustrate a series of recognizable contexts and situations representing the audiences' lives at work and at home, and in this way the audience will identify themselves, their environment and their situations in a fun and non-offensive and non-confrontational context. However, the message delivered will still be clear, hard hitting and direct and always aimed at the results.
One Actor will act as a Facilitator, during intervals; the Facilitator will address the messages in the theatre by simplifying them and putting them in a light hearted way. The Facilitator will encourage audiences to participate in the scenarios while making good and clean fun.
This style of staging will suit the client's expectations as it is not just a one way traffic, but rather an interactive form of communication.
Fun, laughter, song and dance as well as Audience Participation are ''key'' for communicating pressing issues in the Workplace.
