THR-103 - Stage Production

3 credits

This is a theoretical and practical course in the technical principals and methods of theatrical production. It presents two areas of study: first, the study and practice in the design process. Through the study of theatre history, lighting requirements, and set construction, students will learn the process of stage production from interpretation of the script, through methods of recording and communicating designs. Second, students will be supervised in the practice of a theatrical production, including contributing to the set design and construction; lighting design and implementation; stage management, board operations, and the responsibilities of the front of house and backstage crew. Students learn to apply responsible, cooperative, and positive work towards achieving the specific and unique technical demands of theatrical production.
