This course provides an introduction to performance spaces, technologies, and design. We will read representative plays from major historical genres of western theater and examine where and how these plays were originally produced. We will explore basic principles of design and visual literacy as applied to scene, lighting and costume design. Students will attend lectures and develop projects in the drafting of the design idea and the realization of these designs. All will be required to fully participate in crew work on the Theater Department's semester productions. This course is required for entrance to the Theater Major.
