  • This study is based on the narrative theatre production of The Time Traveler's Wife, a collaborative production with adaptor/director J. Lauren Shouse and musical director/sound designer/composer Shannon M. Murphy O'Neill, performed in October 2005 in Studio Six of Swain Hall on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This study examines the importance of music and sound design as a part of the adapted and performed text in a narrative theatre production that is not a musical. Specifically this study examines a.) relevant literature pertaining to music and sound design, b.) the collaboration between the adaptor/director and musical director/sound designer/composer to create the text, and c.) the development of an artistic aesthetic through the study.
