Stagecraft is a course dedicated to learning about, and participating in, the various technical aspects of theatre and theatrical design.

Ms. Krista Price (Instructor) has been teaching and  directing theatre for over 17 years...with more than 50 plays, musicals, and black box shows under her belt.  She has built and grown theatre programs in 3 different districts in Michigan (Byron Center, Rockford, Oxford), and is passionate about strong storytelling on stage through smart, simple, and dramatic design.  When she’s not at school teaching and directing, Ms. Price designs and stages houses.
