KIRKUS REVIEW

Exactly what it says -- in the title -- a good practical handbook, which could be used in Little Theatre groups, High School and College dramatics. The do's and don'ts of amateur acting --speech, posture, make-up, costume, hints for coaching and directing, glossary of terms, standard rules for amateur organizations. A one-act play is then dissected from angle of production -- interpretation -- direction, as a demonstration of the precepts.
