PROPS DESIGNERS

The properties, or prop designer, creates, finds, or buys all of the needed props for a production.  Props are anything on stage that are not part of the set or costumes.  This can include perishables such as food to hourglasses to curtains.  It is recommended that someone interested in props is thrifty and good at making things.  

Typically a prop designer’s work begins during rehearsals and ends when the show opens, unless items need to be repaired or replaced during the run of the show. Props designers are generally asked to attend production meetings, and stay abreast of show needs via rehearsal and production reports. They are not called to rehearsals or performances.
