Storyboard Text

  • Introduction
  • You may travel through each of the seven rooms: blue, purple, green, orange, white, violet, or black.
  • Conflict
  • Security is within. Without is the "Red Death!" You are safe as long as you are here. 
  • Rising Action
  • Prince Prospero has invited a thousand of his friends to join him in the safety of the Abbey. The Abbey has seven rooms each with a different color theme. 
  • Climax
  • "Who dares, who dares insult us with this blasphemous mockery?"
  • Aaaaaaaaaaaaa! 
  • "The Abbey was amply provisioned. With such precautions the courtiers might bid defiance to contagion."
  • Falling Action
  • As the clock begins to toll all the people stop. The music stops, the dancing stops, everyone stops to listen. A feeling of danger and darkness comes over the rooms. As it tolls people wonder if it is a warning of what is to come.
  • Resolution
  • A dark figure appeared in the blue room. His clothes were dripping with blood. He had the face of a dead man. 
  • The Red Death moved through each room. No one tried to stop him other than the prince. The prince chased him to the last room.
  • The prince confronted the Red Death and was killed. The Red Death went on and killed the rest of the people one by one. The clock didn't toll anymore.
