These workshops are available when you need them most...

  • platform construction during the time you are building them for a show;
  • lighting design when this element is being planned or just before the start of tech rehearsals
    so the actual show lighting can be improved;
  • scenic design during the conceptual stage of production or even in early tech rehearsal so the existing design can be enhanced.

These workshops are envisioned as either group activities or a means of “tutoring” individuals who want to expand their technical theatre skills to help your organization’s production program.

Content is scaled to benefit the beginning, intermediate, or advanced practitioner and is variable in length from a one day workshop to several days of planning or tech rehearsal.

Sessions are held at your facility.
