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.
Designers are among the most innovative members of the arts and entertainment world, from theatre to dance to film. With our finger on the pulse of this progressive industry, we cultivate intelligent, engaged, skilled professionals as they become the next generation of leaders in the dynamic field.
