Stagecraft Fundamentals tackles every aspect of basic theatre production with Rita Kogler Carver’s signature wit and engaging voice. The history of stagecraft, safety precautions, lighting, costumes, scenery, career planning tips, and more are discussed, illustrated by beautiful color examples that both display step-by-step procedures and break with the traditionally boring black and white introductory theatre book. This third edition improves upon the last, featuring three new chapters on design for props, projection, and touring. Also included are new end-of-chapter questions and an expanded discussion on LED lighting, stage automation, digital technology, stage management, makeup, theatre management, and sound design.  This is the must have introductory theatre production book.
