For those who are working with high school students, this is a great text! It provides information on every topic the students need to put a show together. The best part is, the humor and sarcasm in the book, make it feel more like a conversation with the author than a textbook! Highly recommended.

Parents get themselves into the most unusual situations when their children get into high school. We volunteer to help and then find out that we are the 'chair' of the committee we know very little about. I have found myself in that situation more than three times as the mother of 5 children, 2 through high school and three to go... It's called Post Prom, an innocuous title until the details become known. In our school the details involve totally transforming the high school for one night into a place the seniors and their guest will not recognize and will enjoy the entire night. (The purpose of course is drug and alcohal free safe fun.) I wish I had had this book two children ago!! Although it is designed for theatre, most of the techniques are very adaptable for transforming the school with low cost into most anything. Particularly because the authors deal with a soup-to nuts, basic to intermediate skill set, I can take this to our meetings and literally show the other parents the how-to! And quite frankly when I become frustrated with either my skill set, or the other parent's skill set, the book's wry sense of humor helps me get on with it. I have a master's degree in Occupational Therapy, which has prepared me for many situations. Thank goodness for this book, because it's helping me through Post Prom Preparation!! I highly recommend it.

This book gives insight to the theater tech industry for both the knowledgeable and amateur reader. The pictures allow for a more in depth and complete understanding of the material. Unlike some drab educational books, the quirky and uplifting humor allows for very enjoyable reading. HIGHLY RATED

Gloman and Napoli's new lavishly illustrated and readable book should prove useful to anyone wanting practical, up-to-date information on the whats, hows and whys of Scene design and lighting. Just a terrific book.

The humor in the book makes it easier to deal with the difficult theatrical material.
