World Building for the Theater


William Webb

Lecturing Fellow of Theater Studies

World Building for the Theater introduces students to the design components used to create a theatrical production: set, costumes, sound, lighting, and projection. Students learn the process that brings these components to life: play analysis for design, artistic research, design, technical and build preparation, construction, and final performance. Each student has the opportunity to focus on their particular area of interest while contributing to the creation of the Theater Studies Mainstage production. Students work in the areas of set, costumes, lights, paint, and backstage support, gaining hands-on practical experience with the tools of their chosen area of interest.
