The purpose of this thesis is to document the lighting design process for the production of William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew, produced by the Department of Theatre at the University of Maryland, College Park on March 3, 2005. The thesis begins with Chapter 1 in which an in-depth textual and production analysis of The Taming of the Shrew is explored. Chapter 2 discusses the production concept, its application to the lighting design, and the collaborative effort made between the lighting, costume, scenic, and sound designers to develop an environmentally cohesive stage design. Chapter 3 explores the steps taken to execute the process as the design makes the leap from intellectual to realized ideas. The thesis concludes in Chapter 4 with a critical analysis of the overall success of the production as well as a personal critique of my role as lighting designer. Following the written portion of the document is a series of appendices intended to provide visual documentation of the design process--ranging from research images to paperwork samples to production photographs.
