Theatrical Design for Actors

Beginning, Intermediate, / Acting, , Musical Theatre, Tech, ,
Presented by Matthew Schlief

Theatrical Design for the Actor is an exploration of the elements of design as it relates to performers. What does it mean to find your light? How should you wear your costume to the best of it's ability? What are the things you need to do or know as an actor to get the most from your technical crew? How should you treat your designers and crews, and what is acceptable behavior for technical rehearsals? These questions can be answered and discussed to help performers become more professional and prepare them for University level and professional productions. This workshop is also applicable for technicians and stage managers.
