Vibrant examples of theatrical design and production were displayed as the Department of Theatre & Drama presented its 2023 Portfolio Exhibition. The annual showcase is created by students pursuing the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Theatre Design & Production. The exhibition was open to the public January 27 through February 10 in the Duderstadt Center Gallery on North Campus.
Undergraduate stage managers, designers, and technicians curated displays to share a behind-the-scenes look at their work on plays, musicals, and operas at the University of Michigan. Students also drew from course assignments, internships, extracurricular work to represent their skills and experiences.
