Theater Arts: Design & Production

The theater program believes that the theoretical approach to theater must be supplemented with practical experience. This lecture and laboratory course is designed to give students experience in backstage and shop safety, production techniques, and the terminology of technical theatre. Students will also be introduced to principles and techniques of various design elements in theatrical production. The collaborative nature of production is learned through active participation on backstage running crews. Participants are given the opportunity to stage Green Room productions and must serve on a Main Stage crew at least once a year.

Students may prepare for an IB Theater Arts exam by taking IB Theater Arts: Design & Production courses in both 11th and 12th grades.

Open to: Freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors
