Program Description:

The Design Program for Theater is a professional training curriculum where M.F.A. designers and technicians collaborate with professional faculty, staff and guest artists to stage exciting, contemporary theater for diverse audiences. We are looking for aspiring designers who will pursue the intent of the play wherever it leads them, into any period or style, into any emotion or state of mind, and whose knowledge and skills are so various that they bring a rich theatricality to the worlds they create. The Design Program for Theater combines intensive classroom work with full-scale productions to create well rounded designers and technicians. Our graduates find work in many aspects of theater, including regional theater, educational theater, and the entertainment industry.
