Imagine designing sets for a play, creating 3D models, then building them in our scene shop, or using a 32-channel soundboard, recording a moving light show, and creating the right atmosphere for a performance. How about planning and running a major production in front of a large audience? That’s just a part of the magic that happens in Production Design. It’s a creative, technical program where you will create original design, and support the other artistic departments in their productions. Production Design students learn all aspects of producing shows and events, from the initial concept ideas and designs to the finishing touches. They gain practical experience on state-of-the-art equipment and develop skills that are valuable in the real-world job market. Students learn to design Sets, Light, Sound, Video, and Stage Management and have internships at the Fox Theatre. They learn carpentry, construction, painting, crafting props and sourcing materials. They gain experience in management, leadership, working on teams, problem solving and working within time and budgetary constraints.
