Playhouse teaches stagecraft

The Whidbey Playhouse will teach all you need to know about stagecraft at a workshop Aug. 19 to 25.

About 12 participants will spend five days learning about stagecraft and how it is used in community theaters. Each day will introduce a new topic with approximately two hours of instruction at the Playhouse starting at 9 a.m. Four to five hours each day will be spent in hands-on, practical instruction at various venues. The effort from this workshop will help support the 2012-13 Playhouse production season.

Topics include set design and construction, scenic painting, costuming, lighting and sound, time permitting.

Students who have an interest in the performing arts and would like to learn more about how to stage a production and volunteers at the Playhouse who want to learn more about what goes on before a production and behind the scenes during the run of a play are welcome to attend.

There is no charge for this workshop but advanced signup is required by Tuesday, Aug. 7.  Class size is limited.
