#115: Theatre Design Exposition at Bethel College

Most of us are familiar with theater exclusively as audience members so consider this your chance to go backstage. Behind the big red curtain, a theater production often involves a small army of dedicated and trained specialists, from set and costume designers to dramaturges and directors, who construct the world of the play.  However, they are often invisible "actors" (so to speak) which is why this exposition at Bethel College is so exciting.

From now until February 12, the Weaver Art Gallery at the College will be displaying student work in all areas of the stage. Student set design, costume design, lighting design, and even research work in theater studies will be available to view in the Gallery. Hopefully many of you have previously attended a local theater performance (maybe even one we've featured on this blog). If you haven't or maybe just before you go to another production, stop in at the Exposition and I can almost guarantee that your experience of and appreciation for the art form will be transformed.

Where: Weaver Art Gallery, Bethel College, 1001 Bethel Circle
When: 9am-5pm, Mon-Sat
Admission: FREE
