This title does what it says: it introduces newcomers to the world of stage lighting. It will not teach the reader the art of lighting design, but will teach beginners much about the 'nuts and bolts' of stage lighting. It covers lanterns, dimmers, control systems, lamps, electrical safety, rigging theory, etc and is packed with good, common sense advice that unravels some of the mysteries of the industry's jargon.
This book will provide an excellent introduction for anyone taking their first steps into theatre lighting: school pupils and students, amateur theatre enthusiasts, professionals seeking a career or vocation change or theatre professionals who have specialised in other areas.
The book is clearly written and illustrated making it an east to understand reference work for the stage lighting novice.
