The Department of Theatre is a collaborative one. Though it incorporates traditional artistic elements such as scale, color, and line it also adds the element of time and sequence. The viewer has not truly seen a theatrical design until they have seen it used in the context of the show for which it was created. The design process begins with the narrative of the play. The five design elements of scenic, costume, props, lighting, and sound, serve to support, manifest, and to illuminate the script. They work together to produce an atmosphere, telegraph time periods, and make the intangible corporeal.
