You can focus on design, tech, and production academically within any of our three concentration tracks. You can also contact our Production Director with questions about design and production opportunities at Brown. The John Street Studio is the focal point for the department's design initiative and provides classrooms, studio space, and support for designers at Brown and beyond. It is a convergence of students and professionals working on departmental productions, as well as artists from other departments and the local community (including RISD/Brown Design for America, Archaeology, the RISD Sculpture department, A Better World by Design and Brown Opera Productions.)
The department relies heavily on students for all of its productions, including the mainstage Sock & Buskin Season, dance concerts, and a myriad of special performance events throughout the year. This includes paid positions for undergraduates with our Costume Shop, Production Manager's office, Scene Shop, Design Studio, and Publicity/Box Office/House Management. Please check the student employment website for current openings with our department. Please note that graduate students and non-Brown students are not eligible for employment with the department.
