This thesis provides a written account of the artistic and academic process of the lighting design of the University of Maryland Department of Theatre's 2005 production of John Caird and Paul Gordon's Jane Eyre, a Musical Drama. The intent of this thesis is to analyze and interpret the lighting design process from its conception to its completion within this four-chapter document. The first chapter depicts the thematic analysis of Caird and Gordon's text and pertinent context regarding the adaptive choices made by Caird and Gordon with regards to Charlotte Brontë's novel Jane Eyre, an Autobiography. The second chapter details the meetings with the production director and design team who helped formulate a concept for the lighting design. Chapter three documents the technical execution of the lighting design. The fourth and final chapter is a critical self-analysis of the lighting design and the designer's process with regards to this production.
