Door Tag: I recently did doortags where I took a playbill and where it would normally say “Gershwin Theatre” I put the room name and number (ex. Robert’s 201 Theatre) and where it would have the play name I put the residents name. It’s very easy to do. You search on google image for a Playbill and copy the image into paint. Then you simply use colored text-boxes to go over the words that are already in there. If you’re really ambitious or dislike technology, they can also be handmade. It was hugely successful and they look great.
Bulletin Board: To go along with my doortag theme, I also did a bulletin board that was a playbill. Before going on winter break I handed out surveys to my residents and from this information I made “bios” and the residents provided me with pictures so the bulletin board is the “cast list” of the play with all of the residents pictures and bios. It was a lot of work but if you return early from break for winter training, you have a bit more time than normal.
