Stage directions are instructions in a play for technical aspects of the production like lighting, sound, costume, scenery or props, and most importantly, actors' movement on stage. The stage directions tell you what a character looks like, where they travel in space, and what space looks and sounds like.

a)     Scenery and Props

i.                   Sitting down while listening to another character speak.

ii.                 Movements that can add tension, humour, or emotion to a scene

b)       Character’s feeling/tone of voice

i.                   Effective use of pauses and silence

ii.                 Facial expressions to illustrate moods in one direction, like center stage

c)     Character’s action or movement

i.                   Stepping forward to the cornfield as you speak to the other character (e.g. Scarecrow)

ii.                 Shaking head followed by nods.

d)    Sounds Backstage

i.                   Sitting on a low mound and trying to take off his boot. Pulling at it with both hands, panting.

ii.                 The character has a hat on and pipe in their mouth, enters and begins placing a table, and three chairs downstage left and a table and three chairs downstage right.
