From monsters to maidens and everything in-between, makeup is the face of every production. In this 10-week Stage Makeup course, students will use the tools of the trade to learn what it takes to transform the actor into any character.

Participants will gain knowledge of makeup materials and techniques. Throughout the course, students will learn concepts such as shadowing, aging, scars, and hair styling.

Stage Makeup students who complete the course may be eligible to volunteer backstage for Stadium musical productions, helping backstage with costuming, hair, and makeup.
