Synopsis: Whether you are a professional, volunteer or student prop master for a play production, this book reviews what a demanding theatre tech position this is. There's a lot more to propping a show than many theatre people realize. The twelve chapters of this book provide clear definitions of the job in action. They tell how to build a props department, how to create props and how to work with the technical crew, designers, supervisors and performers. Until now there has been no comprehensive manual or guidebook like this to lead a prop master through the entire process. No prop master should work without this guide as a ready reference to solve many unexpected problems. This book is divided into twelve chapters: 1. What Are Props? 2. The Prop Master, 3, Interacting with Other People, 4. A Successful Work Envlronment, 5. The Prop Shop, 6. Collections and Files, 7. The First Steps of the Building Process, 8. Start Propping, 9. Rehearsals and Performances, 10. Safety, 11. Timeless Tips and Techniques 12. Basic Theatre Teminology.

About the Author: Growing up in Prairie Village, Kansas, Amy Mussman fell in love with theater performance at the age of six when she participated in her first acting class at Theater for Young America in Kansas City. As time went on and her family moved to Frederick, Maryland, her passion for theater only grew stronger. An active Thespian, Amy spent much of her high school years examining both the backstage and acting arenas while participating with school, church, and community theater groups and a local children's theater touring company. Amy received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theater from Kansas State University and spent her college years studying light, costume, and set design. After graduation, she began her first professional theater season at Delaware Theater Company as production assistant and worked as prop master for nine seasons. She has enjoyed a decade of summers as either the costume designer for Allenberry Playhouse and Forestburgh Playhouse, the prop master for Maine State Music Theater, or working as an instructor and director for Delaware Theater Company's summer youth theater camp. Working on freelance projects fills many of Amy's extracurricular passions for writing and crafting. She has also spent her free time designing costumes and sets for high schools in the Delaware and New Jersey area.
