The first stage of your college education
Staging a theatre production requires people with a diverse set of talents. Acting, lighting, set designing and building, backstage management, and script building are essential to creating a show-stopper worthy of an encore. Rehearsing the skills needed to work within a production can help propel you closer to Broadway.
