Found some information about general theatre production, and I feel like sharing with you
Theatre Production is divided into these three parts
Inmanagement, there are opportunities to acquire experience in technical direction, production management, stage management, and theatre administration (including publicity, box office, and front of house). There are also courses in business and financial planning, new venture startup, organizational structure and staffing, labour law, and health and safety.
In production, there are opportunities to acquire experience in set, prop, and costume construction, painting, dying, maintenance, lighting, and sound installations and operation. There are also courses in physics, occupational health and safety, welding, scenic painting, make-up, wiggery, pyrotechnics, and theatre rigging.
In design, there are opportunities to acquire experience in costume, set, lighting, and sound design. Figuring prominently in course studies are drawing and drafting, mathematics of light, colour, sound, and historical surveys of period style.
