About Theatre Design

Wilkes students have the opportunity to explore all facets of design and technology through coursework offered in all areas of theatre design and production. Opportunities to act, sing and dance are always available to the Design & Tech student as well.

Training involves active participation in the production of four main stage shows each year along with the opportunity to design student directed black box productions. With an emphasis on “hands-on” learning and weekly production laboratories, Wilkes offers students real experience with state of the art equipment under the mentorship of talented and caring professionals.

In addition to completing the required coursework, students enrolled in the Design & Technology program participate in a portfolio review at the end of sophomore year. In senior year, each student produces an independent mentored work as a Senior Capstone Project.

We encourage interested students to visit the campus, see a show and find out if Wilkes University Theatre is the best fit for you.
