UPCOMING WORKSHOPS

A2CT will hold two stagecraft workshops this January. Both workshops take place at the A2CT Studio, 322 West Ann Street, Ann Arbor, MI, 48104. As a part of Civic Theatre’s education series, these workshops offer instruction on sound and lightboard mixing, and operation. Each session will be led by Brice O’Neal, technical theater director of the acclaimed theater department at Community High School. Assisting Brice will be members of Community’s Senior Technical Theater class.  See descriptions and register below!
