While watching “Waiting for Godot,” the process behind each set piece is thought out. Scene, costume, sound and lighting design all play a vital role in the overall development of a play.
This is the first time in more than a decade that all four designers on a production are students.
Each element plays off another in order to provide a smooth transition throughout the show. The designers have the support and assistance from faculty and other students as they develop their craft.
The play was entered in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival. The Kennedy Center hosts 125 students on an all expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. to participate in the national festival.
The designers have keen eyes and ears allowing the attention to detail to show through their work.
Computers are used to set sound and lighting. Each cue is timed and placed together meticulously. Costumes include more than just clothing for each character, makeup and hair also has to be properly designed to go with the outfit that is worn.
The scene of a play includes many pieces that are built and put together across the stage in order to set the play in motion. The design of each set is carefully placed together to create an overall product.
