The purpose of this thesis is to provide research, supporting paperwork, and production photographs that document the lighting design for the University of Maryland - College Park, School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies' production of The Matchmaker by Thornton Wilder. This thesis contains the following: research images collected to develop and visually communicate ideas about color, texture, intensity, form, composition, and mood to the production team; preliminary and final organization of desired equipment to execute the lighting design; a full set of drafting plates and supplementary paperwork used to communicate the organization and placement of lighting equipment to the master electrician; and magic sheets and cue lists used as organizational tools for the lighting designer during the tech process. Archival production photographs are included as documentation of the completed design.
