Drama Scene Shop


The Scene Shop in the Drama Department is primarily used to produce the stage sets and props for performances. The shop has tools for welding, woodworking, metal cutting, a hot wire cutter, a hand held plasma cutter, a vacuum former, and a paint frame that can rig up large projects. The shop teaches workshops about welding, vacuum forming, rigging and flying, OSHA, and Arduino micro controllers. There is also a basketball hoop that takes advantage of the high ceilings. All tools are accessible to students outside of the depart ment who have had safety training.
