Production Crew
Students who will be entering 6th through 12th grade in Fall after the CTE season is complete, may participate:

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.

Tech Theatre Workshop (6th – 8th grades)

Tech Theatre Workshop will focus on making the magic that appears on stage and all the behind the scenes work of the theatre.  It’s very rewarding and requires creativity, mental concentration, and physical strength and agility. Tech Theatre Workshop culminates in running all aspects of the performances of Arts Festival.   Attendance at all Arts Festival performances will be mandatory for Tech Theatre Workshop students.  Includes these activities:
  • Set design, building and painting
  • Stage and shop safety (supervised use of power tools)
  • Rigging
  • Lighting

  • Other tasks necessary to put on a production, for example scenery changes.
