The Theatre Department Scene Shop (FA-B36) is a well-equipped wood shop with metal
working capabilities. Within a framework of numerous hands-on courses, students build
the scenery for all department productions, acquire useful tool skills, and get to
apply knowledge obtained in our lecture classes. Depending on the production needs,
students participating in the Scene Shop Practicum, under the guidance of our professional
staff and faculty, may be involved in basic, intermediary, or advanced carpentry,
metal - cutting, bending, forming and welding, work with plastics and polymers, stage
rigging, and scenic painting.
Participation in Scene Shop practicum is open to all Binghamton University students; you need not be a Theatre major or minor. If you are interested assisting in the construction of the department productions, or are interested in running Stage crew, Props crew or Fly crew on one of our productions, contact Don Guido email@example.com.
The costume shop at the Department of Theatre is a busy place, running as a full shop for productions at Binghamton University and a hands-on classroom. Complete with many sewing stations, supplies, and all the expertise you could ask for in the matter; students have lots of opportunities to learn sewing basics, to design and construct costumes, and be backstage running costume crew during productions!
