After reading this play, I thought that it was going to be
hard to make a romantic Shakespeare play into something horrifying. But
when I read the detailed description of what the creature Caliban was
supposed to look like, I thought it would be awesome! So I went from
I saw the movie that was made in 2010, and to be honest... it was terrible! Don't see it, go to the play instead. That's what I did over the Christmas break. I went and saw the play up in the SLC area and I enjoyed it.
What I came up with, was having the tour groups split up
into two tour guide groups. One group would go to the Ariel group(which
will cover the Romantic side of Shakespeare)and the other would go to
the Caliban group(the Tragedy side of Shakespeare). Both groups will go
to different parts of the auditorium. This will make it interesting
because once one group has gone to their first assigned tour group, they
will want to find out what the other tour group has to offer. Making
the people want to come back a second time.
A Sorcerer like character that will be at the end of one of the tours.
He will summon the Demon Dogs to scare the people in the tour group out
of the building.
Arial(Ariel tour guide #6)-
Is a wind spirit that will be in and out in the tour. Ariel will be hard
to follow in the tour. In the tunnels below the auditorium we will have
Ariel's voice echo one of his/her song that will be altered to sound
more creepy. Throughout Ariel's tour group, the tour guides will take
the groups to the "Romantic Side" of Shakespeare. At the end of Ariel's
tour, Ariel will appear as a black harpy scaring the "Ariel Tour
Ferdinand(Ariel tour guide #1)- He will appear lost and hear
Ariel's voice and ask the tour group to follow him. Ferdinand leads the
group until he is distracted by Miranda.
of Areil's tour)- Ferdinand's distraction. Self explanatory. She will
lead Ferdinand away from the tour group, and the group have to follow
the next tour guide.
After Ferdinand leaves the group.
The Ariel tour group will follow the listed characters below, the rest
of the way to meet Ariel as a harpy.
Alonso(Ariel tour guide #2)
Gonzalo(Ariel tour guide #3)
Sebastian(Ariel tour guide #4)
Antonio(Ariel tour guide #5)
tour guide # 3)- He will look like a mixture of Swamp Thing and The
Creature from the Black Lagoon. Caliban's tour group will be touring the
"Tragedy Side" of Shakespeare. The tour will end with Prospero sending
out Demon Dogs to chase the "Caliban Tour Guides".
These are some sketches that I've done for Caliban and what I think he should look like:
Trinculo(Caliban tour guide #1)- He will be leading the group as a dumb drunk, and will end up finding Caliban after hearing a thunder storm closing in. He uses Caliban as shelter.
Stephano(Caliban tour guide #2)- Will soon after join Trinculo and Caliban to lead the rest of the tour to the end.
Demon Dogs-We will have about 3, and they will be driving the Caliban tour group out of the building.
