dc.description.abstract One would be hard pressed to pin down mankind's first theatrical performance given the frequent nature by which we are prone to entertain each other. However, as the years have passed, mankind has traditionally placed most of its theatrical pursuits on one thing: A stage. It is with my Honors Thesis that I have decided to move the performance off of the stage- examining the nature of acting and creating a mobile production where the audience literally follows the performance through campus along an unfolding path of satire, noir, and Ball State University popular culture. Blending elements of theater and film, the script I have written attempts to immerse the audience not only in the emotions and actions of the myriad variety of characters in the play, but also to blur the line between what is the story world and what is merely the campus they have known and walked day in and day out. The moving production weaves its way through campus, beginning and ending in Pruis Hall, telling a humorous, coming-of-age story of two aspiring actors trying to find their right footing in this strange place we call college.
