The objective of the free WorkBench Lighting Workshop is to introduce participants to some of the basic principles of stage lighting and offer participants a chance to practice applying what they have learned to creating some lighting cues. Each person in the workshop will have an opportunity for hands-on experience working with lighting instruments and a light board. Knowing more about the principles of stage lighting, participants will have more informed choices about how light is employed in theatrical productions. Area high school Theater Departments will find this workshop especially helpful in training theater tech students to approach lighting in a more professional way. The workshop will be led by professional Lighting Designer Heidi Eckwall, Colorado College, and NLOC Technical Director Greg Paul. The workshop will run approximately from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 15-16. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
