Lighting Design for Theatre

With Julia Rutherford

Gain new tips and tricks for your lighting design toolbox as we look at the lighting designer’s role from the moment you say yes right through to closing night.

This includes script work and analysis, working with the director and design team, lighting plans and documentation, tech week and plot, and of course the design process.
