Grantham University Titanic a Night to Remember Presentation

Theater-Film Assignment


Choose a play that has also been made into a movie or television series. If you have no prior knowledge, please research possibilities. Then create a PowerPoint (a minimum of 8 slides with at least two graphics) on the play/movie of your choice and include the following information:
