THEA 250 – Production Lab

THEA 250 – Performance & Production is designed to examine the experience and develop a greater understanding and awareness of the production of live theatre. Evaluations will be based on participation in group activities and discussions, projects, attendance to class and work sessions. This class is taught in tandem with the director: Dr. Stephen Rupsch.

Course Goals:

•        To examine all aspects of theatre, primarily as a collaborative process resulting in an artistic means of expression

•        To develop vocabulary and critical skills allowing enhanced participation as an audience member or theatre practitioner

•        To develop an appreciation of the jobs of various artists and technicians who contribute to theatrical production.

•        To create positive work habits that enhance the “creative” as well as serve the “practical.”

Designer Presentations:

These presentations are part of the class that goes with our productions. In these presentations, I try to show the students not only how I come to the designs, but also a little of the history of the period of the play.
