Nineteen chapters detailing all the fundamentals of backstage work - all the tools and the language for any theatre operation. The book is loaded with photographs, illustrations and diagrams of the text material. The what, when and why of stagecraft. Selected for the Baker and Taylor Approval Program. 

This book is out of date and is an inaccurate reference for up to date stage work. The majority of diagrams are at least twenty years old and the techniques demonstrated in the book are no longer used in modern technical theater.

This book is thorough for secondary level. The corresponding workbook asks questions for which some answers cannot be found in the textbook. Together these books are a very good resource for a teacher who wants to write his or her own curriculum.
