These workshops are available when you need them most...
construction during the time you are building them for a
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.
