Production Crew
Students entering 6th through 12th grade in the fall may participate in either Tech Theatre Workshop (6th – 8th grades) or Production Team Workshop (9th – 12th grades) for an introduction to all aspects of working backstage, with particular attention to safety and learning important skills.  Students may be asked to climb tall ladders up to the catwalk and the above-stage storage area.  Each successive year in these workshops builds on existing skills, and there will be opportunities for more experienced students in Production Team to mentor those beginning students in Tech Theatre Workshop.
