Students will participate in a wide array of courses starting with the basics of design in set, lighting, costumes, sound, and properties. The program also includes courses designed to prepare students to communicate and collaborate with a team of designers. Hands on experiences will range from technical theater communication and safety to courses where students will learn carpentry, painting, sound editing software, sound console operation, the science of light and lighting, and programming industry standard lighting software. All of these courses will culminate in the student's ability to work alongside PMT's professional designers on student and professional company productions.
