Technical Design and Production

The Technical Design and Production class or “tech crew” as it’s known on campus, provides pre-professional training for students interested in live entertainment. The class focuses on four core areas, audio, lighting, scenery, and production management. Students will be taught proper usage of power tools, building techniques, proper usage of lighting and sound equipment, and various other production-related skills.

 Students will also have the opportunity to work any production CVCHS puts on including rallies, sporting events, drama productions, etc. This class gives opportunities for internships off-campus with various theatre companies and elementary/middle schools. Students will be expected to maintain a 2.5 GPA and be “in good standing” on the campus. Class acceptance is based on interviews. No past experience in theatre or live entertainment is needed!  There is a requirement of 100hrs per semester for this class. Students will have plenty of opportunities to receive hours. 

Mission

Our mission is to use live theatre as an opportunity for our students to explore all elements involved in high-caliber stage productions with the hope that they will use the experience as a springboard for their own creative talents and as a means to discover untapped aptitudes.

We believe that, because of our strict attention to professional industry standards, they will internalize a commitment to excellence in every aspect of their lives. We also believe that the art of storytelling will offer them new perspectives of the world around them and that they will use the stage to connect with audiences in meaningful ways.

Vision

We envision that our productions will be widely acclaimed for unparalleled acting and technical excellence; that the skills our students develop will help them emerge as highly competent and creative adults; and that we will succeed in promoting a deeper appreciation of the arts throughout the region.
