Behind the Scenes: Make-up Design
What does it take to subtly age an actor a few years for a specific stage role, to create fantastical, otherworldly characters or to define a time period and the various classes who comprised a specific culture? Make-up design is one very important and effective element that enables the theatre to be magical. Proper make-up design and application can define character, create a new world, and offer commentary on a theme. Talk and work with a top make-up designer and learn secrets and tips for successful make-up techniques that will enhance a performance or an audition.
Experience will include:
- Ways make-up designers use make-up to create different characters
- How to involve oneself in make-up design and make it a career
- Q&A with a Broadway make-up designer or associate
