This thesis will take the reader through the production process for one of Southern Illinois University Department of Theater’s productions, Evil Dead The Musical. The primary focus of this thesis will be to walk the reader through my experiences within for steps of the production process. It will explore challenges that arose, and the solutions found for each. By exploring this production in detail, both the reader and I will identify skills and lessons that can be applied to productions both now and in the future.
