Panel with Jeff Croiter “Start to Finish: The Designer’s Journey”

Thursday, March 21, 2:45PM – 4:00PM – Room M107

Tony Award-winner Jeff Croiter will offer a step-by-step tour of the creative process behind theatrical lighting design, an educational session sponsored by CHAUVET Professional. Drawing on his 25 years of experience as a lighting designer, which includes work on the Broadway productions of shows like Newsies, Jekyll & Hyde and Something Rotten!, he will be sharing his insights into the issues involved in bringing a design to fruition on stage. From reading a script to evaluating how lighting can contribute to the unfolding of a story; to pre-production collaboration; mastering the technical process; and running a show once you are in the space.
