Abstract: The purpose of this thesis was to design the stage setting, lights, and costumes for America Hurrah by Jean- Claude van Itallie and to execute these designs for actual production. The second purpose of the study was to write an evaluation of this production: its successes and its failures. This thesis will consist of three main sections. The fir3t section will contain the designer’s analysis for preparation of the production. This section will cover brief historical and stylistic considerations, plus justification of the design forms chosen for the stage settings, the lighting, and the costumes. The second section of this thesis will be comprised of the technical illustrations and schedules necessary to mount the production. Photographs of the costume and setting renderings will also be included. In addition, photographs of the production in action will be shown. The third section of this study will contain an evaluation of the final product, based on introspective criticism of the production. What was attempted will be compared objectively with what was accomplished visually.
