We invite you to join us for 3 weekends of behind-the-scenes Theatre.
Hear from Globe Theatre's Technical Director, Devon Bonneau, as he talks about the village it takes to put together a production.
Usually, when people think about the behind the scenes of a play, they usually think about the actors rehearsing in room with the Director. What most people don't realize though, is that everything you see, and hear, while watching a play was thought up and designed by a someone. Everything from the set, the lighting, the costumes, the hair, the makeup, and even the sound was conceptualized, curated, and created by a Theatrical Designer.
As the Technical Director of the Globe Theatre; my job, along with talented members of our Production Department, is to work with these designers and help them realize their vision for the play. Working as a team, we work together for months; making sure every detail is in place for Opening Night.
