This document is a project submitted in partial fulfillment of the Master of Fine Arts degree in theatre. It provides an account of author Luke Walchuk’s process in creating and implementing the sound design for Minnesota State University, Mankato’s production of Antigone in January and February of 2016. The paper gives a chronological overview of the designer’s process in four chapters: an early production analysis, a historical and critical perspective, a process journal, and a post-production analysis. A fifth chapter provides a process development analysis of the designer’s career as a student of theatre. Appendices featuring production paperwork and other items of note are included, along with works cited and works consulted.
