Title: Theatrical Design and Production (7th edition) - An Introduction to Scene Design and Construction, Lighting, Sound, Costume, and Makeup
Author: Gillette, J Michael
Price: $184.95

"Theatrical Design and Production" is a comprehensive and practical survey that examines the technical and design aspects of play production, including scene design and construction, lighting, sound, costume, and makeup. Design is presented as both an art closely integrated with the director's, actor's, and playwright's visions, and a craft that provides practical solutions for the physical manipulation of stage space.

KEY FEATURES
