Usefull text

I'm a lighting design major in college, and no matter what I take a class in, Gillette's book is the standard must have for all tech (and acting) majors. It's a requirement for stage tech 1, and then is used again through out the college carreer, and I have heard people even refrence it after they graduate. The best places to start for new techies are this book, and the 'backstage handbook'


I think its an amazing book! very complete, it tells you about the roles of every one involved, the make up, scene design, construction, sound, costume and lighting, so if you are serious about becoming an excelent theatrical designer and producer, then this is the best place to start!! from here you can buy other books, but this is a must have!


Hi I am 11 and I want to make props for my film!Is This the right book?It looks exspensive but is it worth it?I need a book and fast!

Excellent Textbook

This book is an excellent starting point for students interested in theater. It covers all of the major topics: scene design, construction, lighting, sound, costumes, and makeup. I would recommend it to all students and teachers.

Comprehensive? Yes! Acutate? You Bet! Teachable? ON TARGET

Teaching in this technical subject, like working behind thescenes in theatre, is difficult. You have so much to cover and neverenough time to get to it all. This text covers most all the topics related to production. The author has written it in a clear and open way which can be used to foster discussion as well as conveying straight information.. Appealling is the chapter on the design process, it sets the tone for "Why do I need to know all of this stuff". Even more importantly while setting forth a way to approaching design in the theatre it really sets forth a way to addressing life, as "a challenge" rather than a problem. I have taught from this book since it's first edition (and taught from most of the others on the market), this is the text which best has met my needs as a teacher. One can only marvel at how well Michael Gillette has carried on where his father's text left off (Arnold Gillette). This is what good texts are about: information, clear, and a solid foundation of how this knowledge will fit into the whole. This is One!
