9am – 3:30pm
George Fox University
Geared toward high school teachers and staff, this course is designed to introduce you to the diverse skills, equipment, and professional practices used in staging theatre productions. We will explore scenic materials, hardware, rigging, and construction techniques; learn how to correctly coil cables and ropes, tie knots, and fold drapes; and safely use all the tools in a typical scene shop.
Through a series of hands-on exercises and projects that you can use in your classes, you will build the skills you need to flesh out your creative ideas on stage. In addition, we will examine ways to adapt professional practices to the unique challenges that face educational theatre artists, specifically the limits of time, money, and working with volunteers.
Participants can take the week-long course for 2 graduate-level semester credits or choose an optional third credit for work related to a class or production at a home school or theatre.
