THE 136 Stagecraft (Spring)

This is a hands-on course designed to give students a practical and theoretical understanding of the tools and techniques used in the technical building of a stage production. Students gain experience by working backstage on crews concerned with set construction: basic carpentry, electric, painting, lighting, sound, costume, props, and stage management. Students learn to use Vectorworks, a basic computer drafting program used in scenic design. Students are required to work on tech crews for both the Studio Theatre and Main Stage productions, two shows per semester. Students spend 10 to 15 hours a week working backstage. Students also attend a one-hour weekly seminar to learn practical skills. The course may be taken again as Stagecraft (Fall). One lecture hour and 10 to 15 hours per week working backstage. 2 credits Spring
