The purpose of this thesis is to provide all paperwork and supporting research/production photographs that document the lighting design for Marisol by Jose Rivera at the University of Maryland, Department of Theatre. This thesis contains the following: research images collected from various sources to help develop the design for the show and communicate to the director and other designers conceptual ideas for the production (e.g. color palette, quality of light, and ideas of texture); draftings of the scenic ground plan and section; all four plates of the lighting plot that present the mechanics of the design; a rough, preliminary, and final wish list which are used to guide the design development process; a channel hookup and instrument schedule which are used as supporting paperwork for the plot; a cue track used to develop the cue structure of play, as well as to communicate to the stage manager the placement of each cue; and a magic sheet used during the cue writing process that acts as a visual shorthand of the design tools. Finally, archival production photos are included to visually document the completed.
