Technical theatre

5 Credits

The foundations of a theatre come to light as students learn the art of backstage ‘magic’.

This course is available at all three levels. Students learn about all the backstage ‘magic’ in theatres and during theatre productions. Lighting, sound design, set design and construction, hair and make-up design, publicity, and stage management are covered. Students work directly on the December production, and the various other productions throughout the year in this hands-on learning environment. This is the perfect course for those who love to be involved in theatrical productions, but not necessarily as performers. This course is also a great companion course to any of the Drama courses.
