This course allows students to comprehensively and actively understand the entire theatrical production process from the page to the stage. Students will study and gain insight into an actual text being produced in Todd Theatre; work with the artist directing the production to understand and explore the creative and artistic process; and gain first-hand, practical experience working on the production in one of many labs associated with the production process (scenery, lighting, costume, sound, etc.). A unique class melding the theoretical and practical.
