Technical Theatre: Acting isn't the only area our students can be involved in. In this class students will be introduced to all of the technical aspects of theatre. This includes lighting design, sound design, set construction, fly rail operation, and more! Many of these students will participate in our various productions.
Participation is a large part of theatre and will be a factor in grading.
