TECHNICAL THEATRE CAMP

Come learn about what goes on BEHIND the scenes in this very hands-on camp, led by Brice O'Neal, of Community High School's Community Ensemble Theatre (CET). Each day of the one-week, full day camp will focus on accomplishing a specific goal or project. Each full day session will include hands-on work in the A2CT scene shop (building set pieces, painting flats, etc.) and studio work (lighting, sound, etc.). In addition, participants will create a notebook with all the information they learn, and will participate in an end-of-camp showcase. 

Topics will include:

  • Theatre and shop safety
