About

The CSULB Theatre Department offers the option of an excellent Theatre Arts: Technical Theatre program at California State University Long Beach which includes the design categories of Scenery, Lighting, and Costume and Makeup.

Overview

After completion of the lower division core classes which include: study in Acting, Technical and Design Crafts, the History, Literature and Criticism of Theatre, and Directing, students may choose to interview for placement in the Technical Theatre design options.

The Theatre Arts: Technical Theatre program at California State University Long Beach has been organized to serve student needs in three principal areas:

  • Enrichment of the student’s liberal arts background through the development of appreciations and insights derived from theatre arts courses taken as general education electives.
  • Development of interests and skills that offer the students life-long satisfactions as a vocational outlet.
  • Preparation of Theatre Professionals for further educational advancement or work in community, recreational, educational, and professional theatre.

The programme
