Completely updated to reflect state-of-the-art standards in today's fast-changing theater technology, Technical Theater for Nontechnical People helps actors, dancers, playwrights, and directors to understand every aspect of a traditional and digitally supported backstage environment-from scenery, lighting, and sound to props, costumes, and stage management. All sides of production are clearly explained in jargon-free prose, and unfamiliar terms are highlighted and defined in an appended glossary. In addition to discussions on the more traditional elements of technical theater, this book gives equal weight to the new technologies that have become mainstream, including software (DMX, MIDI, and SMPTI) for show control systems, software to build audio cues, and PC-based audio play-back systems.

With constantly changing technology, new generations of producers, actors, dancers, playwrights, directors, and others can find themselves in the dark on the technical matters of their art. More than ever, those involved in live performance need an easy tool to help them grasp the technical side. A newly revised and expanded resource is doing just that. Technical Theater for Nontechnical People second edition by Drew Campbell helps readers to understand and utilize every aspect of the backstage environment.From the Author:
"There are a lot of people in the world who have no desire to be technicians," the author observes. "They don't want to master the technology; they want to use it. They want to stand in the right place on stage. They want to communicate with a designer or a technician. They want to walk into a rental company and know what to ask for. They just want to survive backstage."
