Stagecraft classes are courses offered in backstage theatre: lights, sounds, props, set-design and construction, costumes, makeup, publicity, stage management, etc. Students should be self-motivated, willing to follow instructions precisely and work outside of school hours when needed to produce the yearly school play or musical. Interested Stagecraft students will also learn to be the main theatre technicians for school assemblies and outside rental groups. Because Stagecraft courses are available for multiple grades, grade level expectations are adjusted based on the experience of students enrolled in the class. Students in Stagecraft are given great responsibility, and are expected to develop and demonstrate outstanding leadership abilities. Many graduates of North Delta’s Theatre Production program have gone on to careers in the motion picture and theatre industries.
