Theatre Tech 4 continues to provide students with further opportunities to explore the highly complex world of technical theatre. Emphasizes continued development in all areas of technical theatre; including but not limited to design, leadership, departmental design, facility management, technical support, and production. Mandatory participation in departmental performances (crew work) and attendance of a minimum of two live theatre performances per semester is required. Note: Lab time/production work requires time outside the school day; sometimes weekends and holidays. Courses 59722500, 59723000 and 59723500 combine theories of design and stagecraft techniques with the construction and operation of the various elements of technical theater. Students learn all aspects of technical theater: lighting, sound, set design and construction, costuming, make-up, stage and house management. Students will be able to participate in all the behind-the-scenes action. Students will be expected to show a high level of self-motivation, creative problem-solving, organizational skills, talent (artistic and technical), and cooperation. There will be some night and weekend work during production rehearsals and performances.
