    Making the Stage

Designing the stage looks at the considerations to be taken into account when starting out the design process including access, resources, size of the space etc., creating design concepts and the importance of model boxes that easily communicate the large scale stage design and preparing suitably detailed plans for construction, props, costume and scenic departments.
    Constructing the stage will include an introduction to modern stagecraft and construction as well as practical sessions on stage and set work.

    Dressing the Stage
    Participants will be given a brief history on costume and costume design for theatre throughout the years and will learn about planning, designing, creating and finding clothing including period costumes, footwear, jewellery, wigs etc for the actors.
