Welcome to Stagecraft & Design

DSA Stagecraft & Design endeavors to provide students with a nurturing high school technical theatre and design program that examines technical theatre and design as a creative and multidisciplinary art form with emphasis on process and team building. Students will study design, stagecraft, theatre/art history, and practical skills as they relate to costuming, lighting, scenery, sound and stage management. The program seeks to instill in its students the discipline, work ethic, and compassion that are so necessary in helping them develop into great artists and great citizens.

It is the purpose of the Stagecraft and Design Department to provide an open forum for research, development, and production within the framework of the art forms that create Stagecraft. In doing so, we will strive to instill in each student the following understandings for artistic growth:
• Team Design
• Collaboration and communication
• Respect for, and responsiveness to, the needs of students, faculty, and staff
• Highest standards in professionalism, design, creativity and academics
• Critical, creative and imaginative thinking, diversity of ideas
• Artistic, academic and intellectual exploration
