The Scene Shop is a fully functional carpentry and painting studio that covers over 1200 square feet. Equipped with a full range of hand, power and pneumatic tools, it is located adjacent to both the Harbach and Studio Theatres, allowing relative ease for workflow and production load-ins. With a ceiling reaching 24 feet high, large items are transferred with ease into either performance venue. Students routinely work independently on studio theatre builds and class projects in the shop, though faculty is available for advice and instruction. The shop employs a staff of female and male student workers in both paid and volunteer positions that are open to the entire campus; no preferential treatment is given to students who choose to major or minor in theatre.
