Stagecraft

Stagecraft is a part classroom/ part hands-on course that introduces students to backstage work in the theatre. Topics covered include basic tool use, scenic painting, electrics, props, and sound. This specific stagecraft course has been developed to accommodate the teaching space: the classroom is not in a performance or building space. 

Course Content
Hand Tool Superhero

The first assignment in this class is a fun introduction to the tools found in our shop. Each student pulls a tool from a hat and must do some basic research on how it is used and its history. This project allows the students to explore the shop and our tools in the first weeks of class while they become more confident working in the shop.
