Yeager Labs

So what, actually, is a 1-to-6 model theatre lab? It is a 1’ = 6’ scale, fully working theatre, designed to fit in your classroom. As a quick reference this is "Barbie Doll" scale, at least height wise (we won’t go into real life proportions). Ken is 6’ tall in the lab and Barbie is about 5’-8”. An average model lab proscenium opening of 6’-6” wide and 4’ tall, translates to a 39’ x 24’ proscenium opening. This both feels manageable to work in and represents a fairly standard proscenium theater. We build our labs, with a full range of soft goods including legs, borders, a full stage black, leno filled cyc, bounce drop, white scrim and black scrim. We can also make a full stage rear projection screen(white, grey or black), printed drops, or really anything you want. Add a miniature lighting, sound or projection package from Production Advantage, contact Cyd Knight she helped us spec it out, and you now have a fully functioning theater in your classroom. We are currently working on including elements for flying scenery and rigging. It would be great to be able to teach the fundamentals of flying and rigging without needing a theater. A well equipped lab will plug into one 20 amp wall outlet.Universities and High Schools around the country are now using these to to help teach Lighting, Sound, Projection, Scenic Design, Directing and Stage Management. They are also a great pre-visualization tool to help prepare for upcoming productions. Once you work in one you will never go back to a standard classroom.

This site is designed to share ideas and uses of these labs. They are pretty cool and I am passionate about using them to teach theatre. You can find more info at www.yeagerlabs.com

Yeagerlabs has designed an integrated teaching system to help explore all aspects of theatre in your university or high school classroom. These are fully equipped, working scaled theaters that integrate Directing, Design and Production in the classroom. Theatre is a collaborative art and we should be training young artists as creative collaborators from the start.

To change how we think about teaching theatre. If you have a working theatre in your classroom you can integrate all aspects of this art form that is designed around the the idea of collaboration. Having a director, set designer, lighting designer, costum
