Behind the Scenes
Theatrical productions require many people working behind the scenes. Some of the things that happen to make a theatre show come to life include design and implementation of lights, sound, projections, props, set and costumes. There are also people working in makeup application, stage management, choreography, music directing and directing.
From programming a light board, to building a set, students can find opportunities in this studio to be creative and learn skills in a wide range of theatrically-based artistic mediums, and apply those skills to real life productions in action! If your student is interested in theatre but does not want to be on stage, or loves acting but hasn’t had the chance to work in technical theatre, these classes are an excellent chance to work behind the scenes with theatrical professionals.
