Senior Capstone Projects
Senior projects are the capstone of the educational process here at UW-L to assess a student's artistic vision and technical abilities. These projects are within the student's area of emphasis and require a significant amount of research and collaboration with faculty and fellow students. Performance students present an acting recital with varying monologues and scene work. Design/technical students often complete a scenic, lighting, sound or costume design for a mainstage production.
Project proposals are made the semester before the planned project. Students develop a proposal in writing (through their advisor) and, once approved, work closely with their project advisor as well as their academic advisor. After completing the production aspect of the project, the student must submit written documentation including pre-production character analysis, rehearsal journals, budgets, preliminary sketches, costume renderings, photos, props list, and/or research materials as appropriate.
Senior project guidelines are on file in the Theatre office (154 Center for the Arts). Students should obtain a copy of the guidelines and meet with their advisor before the end of their junior year.
