SUPER SATURDAY PACKAGE

This package combines the rehearsal environment of a musical theater workshop class with technique classes in Jazz, Acting and Music Theater Rep.

TECHNICAL THEATER & DESIGN PROGRAM

Saturdays 9:00AM - 2:30PM

This program provides students with a unique look behind the curtain by offering in-classroom and hands on experiences in the full range of technical theater disciplines. Students will develop the skills needed to analyze text, create conceptual drawings and presentations, communicate their thoughts and ideas in a professional manner, and improve their teamwork skills.

Topics of study include basics of design in set, lighting, costumes, sound, and properties. The program also includes courses designed to prepare students to communicate and collaborate with a team of designers. Hands on experiences will range from technical theater communication and safety to courses where students will learn carpentry, painting, sound editing software, sound console operation, the science of light and lighting, and programming industry standard lighting software.

All of these courses will culminate in the student's ability to work alongside PMT's professional designers on student and professional company productions.
