Stagecraft and Design: Technical Theatre Production

Stagecraft and Design classes are taught by professional technical theatre artists.  

The three week design classes collaborate with a performance class and stagecraft students participate in the design and technical theatre process from imagination to implementation. Participants will have behind the scene access and opportunity to interact with professional designers and technicians. Space is limited to seven participants in this class and due to the unique challenges of each production, student responsibilities may vary.
