Abstract

This project makes available material that will help help drama directors cast young people in an improvisational show. This thesis includes suggestions for try-outs, a play manuscript with specific stage directions understandable to an inexperienced director, preparation exercises to help actors develop necessary dramatic skills, an index to these exercises arranged by areas of skill development, notes to the director, an extensive bibliography, and additional references for further research. The exercises can also be used for development of actors in any production and may be applied to education programs.

The play "Mormon Montage" concerns Mormon contributions to such fields as politics, education, science, technology, and business. It can provide church identification models for LDS youth as well as aid in the missionary effort.

Future contributions of many LDS figures the world over may be added to this script which taps the resources of a world church and portrays the pride of Mormon heritage.
