Theatre which is defined as the art of narrating human to human in a humane way is a stage art in which people express their feelings, thoughts, and opinions about public events. Theatre, past of which is dated to ancient times and therefore has existed for a very long time in the history of humanity, left the place of its stages defined by its audience to stages converted into defined spaces. These spaces which develop and change from past to present converted from outdoor theatres in ancient ages to magnificent spaces in middle ages and finally to modern performance buildings. The design of these spaces varied and developed according to time but the fact that stage designs play an important role in accurately conveying the idea to be transferred has not changed. Correct design of a stage in which a theatre play is portrayed contributes in the indirect or direct reflection of the message that is aimed to be given by the play, integration of space and story strengthens the cogency of the story. The study is the term project made under the scope internal space design lesson in Çukurova University Architecture Division. Students were requested to design a stage for a theatre play, which they will select by themselves. Aim of the project is to express the dreamed/created stages of the selected theatre play by space setup. In stage design, the aim was to be creative so as to support the feeling aimed to be given by the play spatially. In order to strengthen the applicability and practicalness of the study, students were requested to use an existing theatre building. Under the scope of the study, students selected the below pieces of art. •"Cyrano de Bergerac" play written by Edmond Rostand •"Hisseli Harikalar Kumpanyas?" a musical play written by Haldun Dormen •" Diary of a Madman " single person play of Nikolay Gogol •"Victim" play written by Güngör Dilmen •"Hans was Heiri" by Zimmerman & de Parrot and •"Robin Hood" classical play. Students handled the stage as a 3D space and used light and shade elements as design input. In this experimental study performed with the students, the aim was to express a theater play with 3D and create the internal space setup and to develop the fictional space design skill of students for an existing story.
