How can we create a cut list for a standard flat.
What will this lead to in his/her future?
Have the knowledge to create a cut list for various size flats used in tech theater. Such needs will come to play when the student take on the duties of master carpenter and/or tech director. Stage carpenters will also need to be able to read a cut list.
Why does s/he need this?
Stage carpenters will need to be able to read a cut list to allow them to gather and/or cut lumber to build a flat.
I've searched and searched,
only to find a small handful of lesson plans relating to technical
theater (see the bottom of this page.) Specifically for high school.
Please help us all out by submitting your lessons, or ideas for
lessons, to our lesson plan pages.
I have to admit that most of my lessons are stuck in my head. It's the current show and the tech work that needs to get done that dictates what we do in the class. As you all know, with each show, the needs change.
That's not to say that I don't have my info written down. Just take a look at the how-to pages. There they are, just not in "lesson plan" form. Okay, I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the best when it comes to writing skill. That's ok! Everyone has their strengths.
