Take a peek Behind the Scenes!
                       -Theatre production workshops

This  June  holidays, the upcoming ArtsFest presents a host of music, dance and  theatre  performances.  But do you know that behind the glitter of any successful  production  is a complex collaborative effort from a whole team of  unseen  people? This series of workshops gives you an opportunity to go behind  the scenes and shows you the roles and tools of the people behind a
theatre production.

Here's your chance to find out what goes on backstage and learn hands-on from the practitioners and members of the Theatre Studies Alumni and Resource Association.

Session 1 - "Getting started"
What  is theatre? What makes a suitable production? What needs to be looked out  for  during auditioning, casting etc? Take a different look at theatre production  from the seats of the director, producer, stage manager and the different people involved.

Session 2 - "Getting the show ready"
What  is  a stage picture? How are set designs and lighting designs carried out?  Find  out how each individual member from the director, producer, set designer,  technical  manager,  wardrobe  and  props  master  to the follow spotter  work  together  to  present a seamless show. You'll get to try out special lightings too!

Session 3 - "Beyond the stage"
Apart  from  getting  the  act  ready,  learn  about  other aspects such as managing  publicity,  ticketing  strategies,  logistics  and front of house which  help  to make the production a smooth and successful run. Be alerted to  some  problems  theatre  in  Singapore encounter and get your questions about theatre answered.

After this series, you'll better appreciate all the work that goes behind those short moments on stage and view theatre differently!
