Paraphrase Productions believes that Design is at the root of a quality production. Regardless of budget, the design of a production is what brings the audience into the world imagined by the playwright and director. Designers of Paraprhase Productions' Emerging Artists program are tasked with designing the set for the capstone project.
Designers will receive one on one training from an instructor in the Emerging Artists Program. Throughout the course of the program they will have the opportunity to work in various creative departments during the rehearsal and performance process of Paraprhase Productions' summer musicals.
