Abstract

When this play was given to me as one of my production assignments, I was both thrilled and terrified. I thoroughly enjoy Shakespeare, but I realized that this would also be the largest show of the year; it would be the only production to take place in the Morgan Theater, our largest and most challenging space. This was only my second time designing a realized production and I knew it would be a massive undertaking. However, I knew that having a realized Shakespeare design this early in my career would greatly help my portfolio. Also, my advisor told me that this could have been the best realized portfolio piece I could get during my time at Utah State, so I would need to make the most of it. In this piece especially, my advisor Shawn Fisher wanted me to focus on composition.
