Technical Theatre is an interdisciplinary course designed to provide a platform for students to reach proficiency in theatre standards through introductory level experiences in stagecraft and technical theatre applications. Students will receive a general overview of historical and aesthetic traditions in theatre and stage design. Opportunities are afforded for direct application of theory through participating in designing, constructing, painting and lighting stage settings and props for school plays and programs. Students will develop understanding of how the design of a space complements the role of the performer, as well as the intent of the writer.
