Large Scale Theater and Stage Technology  

Learn to become a theater or stage technician! Theater/Stage technicians or crew, work 'behind the scenes' with props, scenery and special effects in theatres, concert halls and TV/film studios. As a stagehand, knowledge of exactly where and when to move objects and scenery is a vital part of any performance. Tasks could include: loading and unloading equipment; helping carpenters to build and put up scenery; attending rehearsals, to become familiar with every scene change; moving scenery, furniture and heavy equipment during performances; opening and closing theatre curtains between acts; operating manual and automated scenery-moving machinery; clearing the stage or studio and backstage area at the end of the performance. Technicians work as part of a team under the direction of a master carpenter, technical manager or stage manager. Senior adult and disabled retiree tuition waivers apply. Transcript available.
