“On my honor, I have neither given nor received unauthorized aid on this assignment” There are many technical aspects of plays that make each and every one unique in their very own way. Some of these aspects include scenery, props, lighting, the various costumes, and sound. Each one of these elements are formatted in a way to bring out the true setting or atmosphere that the director and producers aimed for the particular play to portray.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
