PAC Handbook - PAC Shop

Ours is that magic place where all of the scenery, lights, and costumes are created for the Performing Arts Community at Penn. Here you will find the opportunity to learn, practice and hone your skills in Design and Stagecraft, Stage Management, Producing, and many other Back Stage activities.

  • Theatre and musical theatre groups may use the shop to design and construct sets and costumes or design lights and sound.  All sets must be approved by the Technical Supervisor (Peter) and by any necessary staff for the performance facility (Annenberg, Visual Sound) before construction begins.
  • Dance and other organizations may schedule up to 10 hours only in the shop as available (Theatre and Musical Theatre take precedence) to create drops or very simple set elements.
  • The costume area is available to be scheduled by any PAC organization.
