Production is the lifeblood of a theatre artisan. We produce. We create. We do it
as a team. Over and over you will hear your professors, your peers, and other theatre
artisans refer to theatre as a collaborative art form.
What this means is that we are all working together to create the same end product:
the play (or dance concert).It is important that everyone involved realizes that each
person’s contribution is appreciated and necessary.
You will find that the business of theatre and dance (not just our department) is
a community. The longer you are a theatre artist the more you will find that jobs
come through people you know or have known. In the Department of Theatre & Dance everyone
is expected to contribute time and energy to our community.
All productions need your support and effort in order for them to succeed. There are
some activities that you will be required to do and others that are requested of you,
all of them are opportunities for you to expand your knowledge and to become a well-rounded
artist and a good citizen.
