This three-mod course provides students with experience in backstage and shop safety, production techniques, and the language of technical theatre, and introduces them to principles and techniques of theatrical production design. Students come to understand the collaborative nature of the art of technical theater through active participation building and running the various dance and theater performances in Walton Auditorium.
The first mod of this course is Introduction to Theater Design & Production (ARP420A). The final two mods are dedicated to the work of building and lighting the school’s mainstage theater and dance productions. In these mods, students apply the skills learned in the first mod to become participants in bringing a story to life, as drawings become sets and light plots evolve into lights on stage!
This course may be split over multiple years.
Min-Max Credit Hours: 2.0-3.0
