Who

The Tech Crew is open to all interested students grades 4-12 in school or homeschooled.  The only prerequisite is a desire to learn, explore, meet new people, and collaborate!  All students in the tech crew will explore and work on all technical areas of theatre, and will get to choose their focus in working on the final productions. 


What

Welcoming students with interests in any area of technical theatre theatre - the Tech Crew provides all students with an opportunity to contribute to theatre together through exploration, creativity, and collaboration.  Designed to be an immersive, hands-on technical theatre arts education program, led by a team of area arts professionals, this group of students will meet regularly to learn about all aspects of Technical Theatre and create the technical side of The Highwood Theatre's Mainstage Season of student and professional productions.  Students will have the opportunity to work on all aspects of technical theatre, and will get to choose their focus area to work on for each production (set, props, costumes, lighting, sound).  Tech Crew members will be consistently challenged and inspired to take risks, do their best, and develop as confident collaborators and creators.


When

The Tech Crew members can choose to come one or two days per week. Additional times are required for students who choose to run tech for performances (encouraged, but not required).
