For those of you who are interested in working on the shows either as a crew member or in the shop, you will have the opportunity through your TH 123: Stagecraft, TH 122: Lighting and Sound or, TH 124: Costume Construction courses and the TH 113: Production Practicum applied courses to fulfill lab hours in one of the shops and backstage.
During that first week of classes you will attend a mandatory Majors/Minor meeting and complete the appropriate paperwork for the lab that meets in conjunction with your course (TH 122, 123 or 124) and then you will meet with the appropriate faculty member in the area of study.
For example, if you are enrolled in TH 124: Costume Construction then you will work with Ms. Kate Ellis, if you are in TH 122: Lighting/Sound then you will work with Mr. Ben Alexander, and if you are in TH 123 you will work with Mr. Ben Grohs.
If you have not added the TH 113 class, please contact our office and we will make sure that you are enrolled. Additionally, we encourage incoming students to gain experience by volunteering for a crew or for work in the shop if they are not in a TH 113 lab class.
You will have the opportunity to meet the designers and technical staff (Kate Ellis, Nancy Parr, Ben Alexander, and Ben Grohs) either at the New Majors/Minors meeting or when classes begin.
