Thanks to all who came out to the 5 spot on Monday for a great lunch meet and greet. If you couldn’t make it, stay tuned here to some of this quarter’s upcoming events. Looking forward to meeting you. Also, if you have any ideas, events, or just cool moments of lighting to share, please email me at email@example.com and I’ll post them for you.
Complete this short evaluation on your extended learning experience (workshops, extra help sessions, field trips, etc.) and you could win tickets to SCAD signature events, gift cards and more! Prize winners will be announced monthly.
You must submit the evaluation and then forward me the response you get after submission. This will allow me to count you “present” for the class you are attending by going to one of the sessions.
The symposium field trip that is required for your class will be held on the following dates and times. You need to attend a minimum of 2 hours in order to receive credit for attendance.
Friday, January 25th (MLK makeup day)

3. Future employment opportunities and strategy
4. Overview of the TEA members’ work and company projects
All you need to know about the Southeastern Theatre Conference can be found at this link. Don’t forget to save money by registering early. Later in the quarter, there will be student-organized meetings set up for people to carpool and share hotel rooms to save money.
Interested in Lighting Design? Not even sure what that is, but you like hanging around some of the most awesome people in production design? We’re going to have a lighting mafia meeting at the new 5 Spot restaurant located in Habersham village on MLK day (Monday, January 21st) at 11am. You’re out of class anyway, you may as well come and meet up with other lighting students and faculty for a bite to eat and an update on all of the opportunities coming up this quarter as well as the best places to look for internships for the summer. If you’re not familiar with the 5 Spot, you can visit the website listed below. You’ll see that it’s just a block or so from the Terrace dorms, so if you don’t have a car, you can either take the orange line or the terrace express and then just walk 1 short block over to join us. Please spread the word. You don’t have to be a production design major to be in this not-so-elite group, you just have to like lights.
Please RSVP to the email below so that I can reserve us some space, but don’t worry, we’ll leave room for extras.—Ruth

Welcome to Script Analysis, PROD 210. You will want to search far and wide for this expensive text. We will use it extensively and you will need to have it by the end of the first week.***It is UNLIKELY that you will find this book for sale in Savannah, so let the internet work for you!
|The Longman Anthology of Drama and Theater A Global Perspective|

We will use one of the same books you had in PROD 220:
A Practical Guide to Stage Lighting (SECOND EDITION!!! VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
By Steven Louis Shelley ISBN-10: 0240811410, ISBN-13: 978-0240811413
You will also need this new book:
The Lighting Art: The Aesthetics of Stage Lighting Design (2nd Edition) [Paperback]

Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy of the Urinetown script. You will also want to pick up an original broadway cast recording.
You do not have any required reading over the break, but as many of you have emailed me about getting ahead, you may want to read and listen to Urinetown as well as start on your script analysis of that work. Another good idea is for you to refresh your memory of the Shelley text by studying the glossary as well as the entirety of the Stage Lighting for Students website. http://www.stagelightingprimer.com/
