This program provides students with an overview of theatrical terminology, scenic design, stage lighting, set construction, stage rigging and draperies and sound systems. Safety precautions required to work in a theatre, on a movie set or for a television studio are also explored.

  1. Develop materials necessary to stage manage a production, such as a prompt book or rehearsal schedule.
  2. Develop a concept and execute a lighting design.
  3. Synthesize elements of design and drama in order to construct scenery appropriate for a production.
  4. Communicate effectively with various theater practitioners, such as the director, scene designer and technical director.
  5. Construct both hard and soft theatrical flats.
