Tech & Design Work

Theatre technicians at Baylor take part in a wide variety of projects, from classwork to mainstage productions. Undergraduate designers fill many positions of responsibility for our mainstage shows, including stage managers, master carpenters and electricians, props masters, and even full-fledged technical directors. Undergraduates also do some heavy lifting in the area of mainstage design, and it is not uncommon to find undergraduate names among the lighting, makeup, costume, scenic, and sound designers for each show.

As with our acting program, the lack of a graduate design degree at Baylor means undergraduates need not compete against graduate students for significant formative design experience.

Our undergraduates produce many costume renderings, some of which are made for class projects and some of which get turned into beautiful costumes for our mainstage productions!

Undergraduates are fortunate in that they have the opportunity to study under true masters of the theatrical craft. Here you can see some examples of the work of our head lighting instructor, JoJo Percy.
