…a healthy dose of everything that pertains to the theatre. Many professions encompass the theatre from scenic design, costume design, special effects and make-up to technical direction, flight master, literary and theoretical scholarship, dramaturgy, sound design, lighting design and performance, just to name a few. Many students come to us because they have been introduced to theatre in their high schools or community-theatre groups.
