Theatre Design and Production

Do you love telling stories? Are you interested in what happens behind the scenes at a concert or play? Do you want to learn how to design and to create your own productions? Do you want to tell stories with items that you have made? Are you interested in running lights, video, or sound for live events? Do you enjoy creating costumes for your favorite character? Are you interested in pursuing a professional career in costumes, lighting, sound, projection, scenic arts, or stage management? That's what we do here. 

The Fine Arts Center Theatre Program has been around since the Fine Arts Center opened in 1974. The emphasis has always been on high quality training, out-of-the-box production, and college and career preparation based on professional theatrical standards. Performance and design were taught together until 2007, when, in response to student interest, the areas split into Theatre Performance and Theatre Design and Production. 

You can test yourself. You can find your place. You can discover your strengths and develop a plan for your future. Whether you continue in theatre or choose another career path, the tools you gain at the Fine Arts Center will be useful for a lifetime of stories.
