This class is an introduction to theater tech, designed to teach students the skills and terminology of the various technical fields of live event and theater production. Topics covered will include light and sound design, costume design and construction, stage management, carpentry/set building, and prop making. Come prepared to learn an overview of each! This class is introductory, but is also open to students who have experience in one area of theater tech and want to learn more in an unfamiliar area.
Along with hands-on work in our theater, we will visit local theaters to see how they run their tech, and speak with professionals in various tech-related fields and positions.
Depending on the number of students, we will round out the term by designing a production (lights, sound, set, props, costumes, etc.) as a team.
