Theater Arts at Caltech is familiarly known, typically prepares and
performs two or three plays each academic year. Recent productions
include George Morgan's Pasadena Babalon, Karel Capek's RUR, and Bertolt Brecht's Life of Galileo.
Members of the Caltech community have the opportunity to learn all aspects
of the theatrical craft: acting, stage crew, set construction,
wardrobe, light and sound operation, properties, house management,
and publicity as well as working with professionals in areas of
theater design: set, light, sound, costume, and music. This is
a hands-on approach, not classroom theory. It also provides an
appreciation of the theatrical literature and exposure to the literature
of many languages (in translation).
