Technical Theater Concentration

The technical theater concentration is designed to develop a general base of technical, analytical, managerial, and creative competencies aimed toward entry positions in theatrical production. Students are trained to become resourceful, imaginative, and technically competent people who integrate engineering and artistic techniques with theatrical settings. Students take courses in computer-aided design, stage lighting, scene design, stage management, and production planning.

Technical Theater Professor Cap Corduan was recently profiled in The Sentinel & Enterprise. She directed The Diviners in Fall 2018. Read about her in the Sentinel & Enterprise article
