This thesis takes a look at current and past design practices for performance landscapes and combines them with the professional needs of community theater groups in order to generate design criteria for small scale outdoor theaters. The last book written on how to design outdoor spaces specifically for theatrical use was completed almost a century ago, and it is time for an updated manual. A literature review on indoor and outdoor theater design practices, case studies and stakeholder interviews are used in this study. The final design criteria looks at requirements for the theater landscape in regard to audience experience, promoting interaction between the performer and audience, audience comfort, lighting, acoustics, and technical requirements of the theater professional.
