This is a hands-on course in the construction of scenery and properties for the Musical, One-Act Play, Advanced One Act and other performance oriented classes. The class will read the scripts for these plays, along with viewing design drawings and discussing possible solutions. This course will explore a variety of materials used in scenery and prop construction, including styrofoam, wood, canvas, cardboard to name a few basics. An emphasis will be placed on safety in the use of hand tools, shop procedures, and in the theatre in general. All students will be assigned to a variety of backstage assignments for the performances. All you need is a willingness to learn and work cooperatively to build and paint for the theatre. So just bring a smile and some old clothes! No experience necessary.
