Theater Design & Production

Students enrolling in this course must begin with Introduction to Theater Arts. After completing the Introduction students may take the Stagecraft mod once or twice.

Introduction to Theater Arts
This course serves as an introduction to the world of technical theater, giving students the terminology, basic skills, and an understanding of concepts that will become the “toolbox” for students moving on to the Stagecraft, Production, and Design mods. This introductory mod will cover theater terminology, safe usage of the most commonly used tools, shop safety, basic lighting, carpentry, and introductory design concepts to further aid in the student’s understanding of this art. Students will apply their knowledge by assisting in the construction of the show currently being produced.

In the Stagecraft mod, students are introduced to principles and techniques of various design elements in theatrical production and work to turn a stage design from idea to reality for at least one production. Students must take Introduction to Theater Arts before taking Stagecraft.
