The Scene Design program demands operations and scenery of the highest standards. Each shop is professionally staffed by The Repertory Theatre during the day and by students in the evening. Scene Design also helps students develop other basic skills, including construction, shop practices, and rendering techniques.
The third year and fourth year offer further design and conceptual experience, both in the studio and in actual production work. Webster is one of the few undergraduate institutions that requires that all of the productions be designed by students. This practice allows students to acquire experience necessary for the degree, and provides representative samples for their portfolio, creating a unique opportunity for professional growth.
