Transcript Can't...get...this...nail...out. Freshman theater major Art Ornelas works on completing the set for Our Country's Good. The set for a play is as important to the success as the actors, -photo by Yvonne Feece It's so small! Junior costume desing major Nicol Beck, explains her set design to her class. Theatre majors were required to take set design as part of the curriculum for theatre, -photo by Kena Alvarado Where it all begins... Scene shop foreman Drew Hoovier has his backstage scene shop packed with relics from past sets. This was where the students worked on the set for the productions, -photo by Michelle Lehmann I love my job! Senior English and anthropology major Able Windam has a job working the welding equipment in the scene shop. Some students actually had paid jobs in building the sets for productions since it was such hard work, -photo by Michelle Lehmann Shhhh! I'm working Sophmore theatre major Jessie Hood mixes paints to finish up the sets of Our Country's Good. Students worked on many aspects of designing set for productions, including appropriate colors for the set. -photo by Yvonne Feece Behind the Scenes of the Theatre There's more going on behind the production of a play than most people think I think they should do a production of Cats. Mouse, one of the two cats that hunts for mice, props himself up on top of one of the chairs in the Wortham Theater. The two cats have become part of the theater as much as the actors and the stage crew. -photo by Michelle Lehmann When students walked onto the stage of a theater, they didn't realize the dedication and work that the production crew expended for the actors to make the play successful. Students in theater actually knew what kind of work was put into the production of a play. "It takes a lot of collaboration and compromise in order to tell the the story well. You need to do what is necessary for the good of the show," said Nicol Beck, a junior costume design major. Many classes were offered to help students in that understanding. The University of Houston School of Theatre offered a wide variety of courses for the undergraduate student. Ranging from Intro to Theatre to courses such as Stage Combat, Production, Pantomime, Scenic Design, Costume Design, and Playwriting, students had lots of fun while learning about the intricacies of theatre. Most of the students agreed that the department was one of the best in the country. "I think we are one of the best and most under-publicized departments in the state," said sophomore theater major Jennilyn Comstock. To have a real understanding of what went on behind the plays, students were able to gain hands-on knowledge of set building, costume design and lighting. The control was not only in the hands of the actors. "The actors don't realize we could just turn the lights out if we wanted," said Comstock. Students were involved in many small plays as well as four large productions during the school year. They also include themselves in small productions of children's plays shown throughout the summer. Most productions were located in the Lyndall Finley Wortham Theatre complex that was built in 1977 and was newly remodeled in 2001 after the flood of Tropical Storm Allison, further enhancing the theater's up-to-date technology. -Richard Whitrock 1 Iraeatre
