Performance and Production Lab

One purpose of the P/P labs is to employ the unique opportunity of working on productions to advance the synthesis of theory and practice. The P/P labs also give students the opportunity to experience the creation of theatre holistically and in a critically self-reflective manner. The process of producing theatre can too often induce students to jump into production without the ability to discuss the process or learn from others. Students are mentored during this process, requiring a formalized class structure in order to frame their experience as a learning tool. All student members of any theatre production are required to enroll in a P/P lab as a class. Students learn the roles of stage and house manager, props master, master electrician, scenic artist, costume manager, and actor/actress. All production running crews.
