Working back stage on the Drama Faculty production provides an opportunity to learn what is involved in putting on a performance, and to observe the creative process of the director, designers and actors first hand. Students will fill a role through the week of technical rehearsals and performances, either as general run crew, light or sound board operator, or wardrobe crew, and will be expected to submit a journal reflecting on the experience at the conclusion of the production.
The Spring 2014 production will be HOW WATER BEHAVES by Sherry Kramer, directed by DIna Janis. The approximate schedule will be: April 28-May 1 (Mon-Thurs) 6:30-11:30 pm; May 2-3 (Fri-Sat) 6:30-10:30 pm; May 4 (Sun) 6:30-11:30 pm. It is likely that a few additional sessions will be scheduled during the preceding week. ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST BE AVAILABLE AT ALL OF THE TIMES LISTED ABOVE. This course will meet intensively during the times listed, and not for the entire term. Taking this course will fulfill any drama or dance lab requirement.
No previous technical theater experience is required.
