Patrick Daugherty of the Pierce College Theatre Department announced a special workshop for Theatrical Stage Lighting to be presented at the college May 15.
“The workshop, which begins at noon will last about an hour and a half. It is free and open to the general public,” Daugherty explained. He said Lighting Designer Scott O’Donnell will conduct the workshop.
Locally, besides Pierce College, O’Donnell has designed lights for Tacoma Actor’s Guild, Tacoma Little Theatre and Tacoma Opera. He has a Master of Fine Arts degree in Lighting from San Diego State University.
According to Daugherty, this workshop will take a broad look at Theatrical Stage Lighting and how it is used to enhance performances. “By the end of this workshop the attendees should have a good basic knowledge of Theatrical Stage Lighting and how to apply it. They will also receive a certificate of completion.” Daugherty said.
The Pierce College Fort Steilacoom campus is located at 9401 Farwest Drive S.W. in Lakewood. For more information, call Daugherty at the college at (253) 964-6683.
