ABOUT THE THEATRE DESIGN THREAD
The Theatre Design thread provides FAPpers with a broad overview of the many elements of technical theatre. Working with experienced resident artists, FAP students learn about scenic painting, theatrical lighting, sound board operation, and many other interesting areas. Aside from large workshops, there are also smaller master classes designed to give students hands on experience in design and production. Students paint cartouches, focus lights, and design scenic elements. The thread culminates in the creation of a full scale backdrop for the FAP Pageant. Using the FAP theme, theatre design members create an original drop design, and with the guidance of Peter Miller, bring their vision to life. This thread is particularly great for those with little experience who wish to join the world of theater.
