Class Projects

These are samples of student work from a number of classes I teach at Lehigh University: Scenic Design, Scene Painting, Model Building, and Design for the Theatre. At the end of each semester, I organize the Department of Theatre Design and Tech Showcase, which displays student work from all of these courses in addition to lighting design, costume design and construction and stagecraft classes.

The Winter's Tale

Shakespeare in Clark Park, an annual tradition, brings top-quality local actors to perform classic Shakespearean works and are incredibly well attended. Just one Saturday night performance can attract more than 1,000 people and their picnics. For SCP's tenth anniversary production of The Winter’s Tale, I worked closely with the director and puppet designer to create a whimsical, interactive environment for this outdoor production which integrated a chorus of 25 children and a large-scale bear puppet into the story.

Mad Forest

Muhlenberg College’s Mad Forest is an interview-based play about the 1989 revolution in Romania created by a team of British and American artists who visited Romania months after the revolution. This tense and emotional play follows two families as they navigate through the rough terrain and rubble of pre and post-revolutionary Romania. The scenery creates both the physical and psychological space of the characters that begins as a rigid cold fortress that crumbles under the pressure of both itself and the will of the people.
