How Technical Theatre Skills Benefit Performers and Students!
For beginners and more advanced actors, it is a great idea to have a broad understanding of the production process as a tool for a better performing arts experience.
Navigate each project with more confidence
A well-rounded knowledge of Technical Theatre can give students a leg up in many ways. Communicating in Technical Theatre terms is one of the ways that will separate them from the rest and show students to know their stuff and navigate the stage, rehearsals, and technical week with way more confidence.
Valuable solving problems skills on and off stage!
Technical Theatre teaches students skills for their performances and everyday skills like how to mend their clothes, how to use power tools, how to problem solve, and how to do all of that safely.
More opportunities to meet amazing people!
The performing arts are a highly collaborative field. When performers experience work in Technical Theatre, they will find themselves in a room with many different production departments, like directors, custom designers, props masters, makeup artists, and more! And having the opportunity to interact with them will open opportunities to learn beyond the script and songs.
More financial opportunities in the field!
When at a more advanced level in theatre, working in Technical Theatre can also offer some consistent work in between performing gigs and help support you financially and create a community within this field. We all know how important it is to improve our craft because there’s always something new to be learned. Still, it is also important to network, make connections, and build upon other skills that can create even more opportunities for ourselves in ways we never expected.
