THEA 2984 Cooperative Study IV

0.0 - 14.5 - 4.0



Course Description

This course is the beginning of a second-year apprenticeship, where students arrange to work in a specific area in a specific craft with a specific Journeyman Sponsor over the course of the academic year. During the course of the year, students produce a capstone portfolio and develop a significant capstone project in cooperation with professional staff that demonstrates the apprentice has accumulated the skills of the trade to such a degree that they may find entry-level employment in the trade. Capstone experiences may include general technician, costuming, box office and stage management, props, scenic painting, and electrics (either lighting/sound or both). Second-year apprentices are expected to work behind the scenes on shows as well as in shops to prepare shows for the stage.
