CTE: Technical Theatre II Stage Design

Technical Theatre 2 continues to refine those concepts and skills outlined in Technical Theatre 1. The course broadens the focus of design to include lighting and costumes and expands the student’s understanding of the inter-relatedness of the various design aspects. The topics covered include research techniques and tools, play analysis for visual interpretation, graphic techniques of expression including sketching, drafting, rendering and model building. Students are directly involved in the technical aspects of the productions as they design and construct sets, costumes and makeup; hang lights, create special effects; paint; and build props for the productions. Students learn specialized vocabulary and explore set design, lighting design, and costume design. Students reflect on design elements found in school an outside production with design analysis and critiques. In the second semester, students explore mood, color, application and perspective. Problem solving, leadership, and working well under pressure are stressed as the students are exposed to the history of theatrical design and current trends in technical theatre.
