Theatrical Makeup

For Ages 12 to Adult


From monsters to maidens and everything in-between, makeup is the face of every production. In this 10-week Theatrical 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. Theatrical Makeup students who complete the course may be eligible to volunteer backstage for Stadium musical productions, helping backstage with costuming, hair, and makeup.

Students must bring their own Ben Nye Theatrical Creme Pro Makeup Kit. This can be found and purchased online. Without the purchase of the Makeup Kit, some makeup looks may be harder to accomplish.
