These courses are designed to give the student practical experience in the “backstage crafts” of the theatre. You will have the choice of working on a construction crew for the semester in either the scene shop or costume shop.
Theatre 167 is designed to be the first course in theatre participation. If you have not worked in theatre on the college level, you should be enrolled in this section.
Theatre 262 is designed for students who have either had Theatre 167 or have worked backstage in college theatre. Students enrolled in this course will be expected to demonstrate an intermediate skill level in an area of theatrical crafts. Theatre 167 is normally a prerequisite.
Theatre 362 is an upper level course for advanced students. Prior experience is highly desirable. A person enrolled under this course number should possess a high skill level in an area of theatre crafts. Theatre 262 is normally a prerequisite.
Construction Crew: You are expected to work 40 hours in either the scene shop or the costume shop during the course of the three-week semester. Exactly what hours you work will be arranged with the supervisor of that area. In general, you are expected to spend 14 hours per week, preferably at the same time each week. If you can’t be there for a previously arranged time, you must call your supervisor and arrange to make up the time. Two unexcused absences will result in your suspension from this class.
Appropriate attire is necessary for every call. If you are not properly attired you will not be allowed to work in the shop. These regulations are necessary to insure your safety and the safety of others. Please see the handout on Safety Rules and Regulations.
1. 40 hours is a minimum passing requirement.
2. Attitude and Initiative can and will make a difference in a grade.
Scene Shop hours: 1:00-5:00pm - Monday through Friday (424-7051)

Note: Both of these numbers have answering machines, so there is no excuse for not calling if you will be late or absent.
