When an audience attends a theatre, their focus is generally on the actors, musicians and other performers they can see onstage. This exhibit, however, spotlights those people not often seen by the audience, but just as crucial to making a theatre performance work. These people include set designers, costumers, the lighting crew, stage managers, special effects experts and other personnel working behind the curtain.
This exhibit includes various resources about behind-the-scenes careers in theatre. These include introductory and general sources, specified items focusing on distinct areas of expertise and even a glossary of technical theatre terms.
