Theatre Design Studio

Theatre Design Studio started as a pilot program in 2020 with partnering schools in collaboration with The Old Globe’s Production and Arts Engagement Departments. After excellent attendance and interest, TDS returns this year to all interested high school students and recent graduates. Theatre Design Studio is an intensive online program that looks at the design components of theatre. Each week will feature a different subject: set design, costume design, and prop design. Students will attend online lectures and participate in group activities that will lead to a final project based on each week’s focus. Last year, TDS teachers included members of The Old Globe Production Department and professional theatre designers from around the country. Students who complete their session will receive a certificate of completion and will be offered additional activities and access to Old Globe staff once the theatre reopens for in-person visits to enrich this opportunity further.

In our continuing effort to make theatre matter to more people, the Theatre Design Studio is provided free of charge to all students thanks to our generous donors.

Applications are now closed. Thank you for your interest!
