Publisher Comments:

Veteran theater designers Karen Brewster and Melissa Shafer have consulted with a broad range of seasoned theater industry professionals to provide an exhaustive guide full of sound advice and insight. With clear examples and hands-on exercises, Fundamentals of Theatrical Design illustrates the way in which the three major areas of theatrical design—scenery, costumes, and lighting—are intrinsically linked. Attractively priced for use as a classroom text, this is a comprehensive resource for all levels of designers and directors.

Book News Annotation:

Written for designers, directors, and students, this guide focuses on the design of theatrical scenery, costumes, and lighting. Part 1 explores the preliminary design process, with material on script analysis, researching the design in libraries and online, using visual sources, and collaboration. Part 2 outlines the design elements, principles, and visual composition components of theatrical design, and part 3 covers the artistic and practical processes of theatrical design, with separate chapters devoted to scenic design, costume design, and lighting design. A final chapter gives advice on building a career in theater design, with tips on resumes, cover letters, the portfolio, and job interviews. Appendices offer lighting and scenery diagrams, definitions of theatrical genres, a review of theatrical styles, glossaries of color theory and general theater terms, a sample resume and cover letter, and step-by-step checklists. The text is illustrated with b&w photos and illustrations, plus a few color photos. Brewster and Shafer are affiliated with the theater department at East Tennessee State University.
