This course explores some of the artistic and practical aspects of using sound in support of theatrical production. The course employs concepts of design drawn from the theater and applies those concepts to the choice of music and sound effects for the stage. We explore the potential of sound and music for the reinforcement of dramatic content and production design concepts, and introduce the production organization common to most theater productions: the collaborative design process and the team approach to production assignments. Offered every year. Also offered as PCA 202.
