Associate of Science
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.
This program prepares the student for transfer to a four-year institution in theatre or for employment in the field of performance. Students interested in pursuing a shorter program in the technical aspects of theatre should see the Technical Theatre Certificate.
Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will:
- Develop materials necessary to stage manage a production, such as a prompt book or rehearsal schedule.
- Develop a concept and execute a lighting design.
- Synthesize elements of design and drama in order to construct scenery appropriate for a production.
- Communicate effectively with various theater practitioners, such as the director, scene designer and technical director.
- Construct both hard and soft theatrical flats.
