Theatre Design and Production at NEYT
Interested in researching and finding authentic period costumes? How about creating a set on a model scale before building it on stage? Or running a spotlight?
Students have always been involved in the behind-the-scenes aspects of producing one of our spectacular shows, but with the December 2007 production of Guys and Dolls, our tech theatre program has reached new heights. We hired professional set designer Larry Lawlor to work with students in creating NEYT’s first set on a truly Broadway-size and scope; a colorful extravaganza, complete with pivoting platforms, walls opening and closing, and student stagehands moving scenery in coordinated movements. Along with learning set design and construction, this group of eager young students also studied lighting and sound with Jerry Stockman, costuming with Sandy Klein, and ran the show during its entire two-week run.
NEYT's theatre tech program runs in conjunction with our major shows. Check under classes to find out more about how you can get involved.
The Technical Theater Program is supported in part by the Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.
