Theater Production Arts is an intensive, hands-on summer course, where participants are mentored by seasoned professional artists from the Stratford Festival and learn all the skills required to create a stage set.
Elements built during the course will be used in a professional theatrical production.
Theatre Production Arts introduces participants to the basics of stagecraft including: Stage Carpentry (Weeks 1 or 2); Artistic Welding (Weeks 1 or 2); Scenic Painting (Week 3); Mask Making (Week 4); and Prop Making & Faux Food (Week 5).
Registration in the five week program includes tickets for Stratford Festival productions, warehouse and backstage tours.
The low student-to-teacher ratio in each course ensures instruction is geared to the participants' skill level and experience. Please indicate your related experience when you register.
The course fee covers the cost of your materials during the course. During the program, participants have the opportunity to work on personal projects. Depending on the complexity of those projects, additional costs for materials may be incurred and are the responsibility of the student.
