THE 211 - Theatre Production Laboratory
The purpose of this course is to give the student insight and practical understanding of the skills necessary to be successful in the high-pressure environment and lifestyle of a theatre production. Practical experience in theatre is achieved by successfully completing a crew assignment on one of the college's theatre products. Technical aspects of a production include scenery, lighting, costumes, stage management, and artistic management. Specific assignments to production areas are made by a Visual and Performing Arts Department instructor based on student requests and production needs. Students will be expected to spend a minimum of eight (8) hours per week in supervised contract learning situations.
