Theatre and Drama 162:
Theatre Production Laboratory
with Andy Palmer
About this Course: Our course, Theatre Production Laboratory, gives students an opportunity to participate in actual, upcoming University Theatre performances. It is structured so that students understand the roles of the technicians who work backstage and participate in helping create a University Theatre production. This year’s production will be, “Almost, Maine.” We will work on production pieces including:
- Lights or sound console operators
- And other areas!
Technical rehearsal and performance attendance is mandatory. We hope you’ll join us!
