Lab Project Proposal

The Department of Theatre is accepting proposals for Lab Project Series. 

The Lab Project Series offers advanced-level theatre majors and minors as well as official student organizations an opportunity to produce theatre in the Clarence Brown’s Lab Theatre.

What the Department Provides: Selected projects receive up to 2 weeks of time in the theatre, use of the theatre’s repertory lighting and sound equipment, and House Management for up to 4 performances.

What the Individual/Organization Provides: You provide the show.  This includes everything not listed above including purchasing scripts; arranging for payment of royalties; providing all scenery, costumes, and props; and scheduling/finding space for auditions and rehearsals prior to the project start date in the Lab Theatre.  Projects are also required to take care of the space on a daily basis and to restore the space completely before the end of the project’s scheduled time in the space.  Individuals and/or groups may be billed for incomplete restoration of the facility or for damages.

NOTE: For the safety of all involved, lab projects are required to include a CBT Lab Supervisor for load-in, load-out, and designated “build” days.  This position is paid for by the proposing individual/organization, and the number of days required for the supervisor is dependent on the needs/scale of the proposed project.  Limited departmental funds are available to cover some of this cost.  More information and rates will be provided soon.

Who Can Apply?  Undergraduate Theatre Majors/Minors who have successfully completed THEA 220, 300, 430 (or be enrolled in 430 by completion of lab project), and a Design/Technology course, and any official student organization may apply.  For campus organizations, the Director for the project should file the actual application and present to the Lab Project Committee.

How to Apply: The application and instructions are available here:
