The site was created for students, technicians, teachers and administrators alike.


Learn tips and tricks for the technical end of putting on a production.  Maybe your drama teachers or technical directors are very versed in tech, or maybe they just hand you the keys to the booth and tell you to figure it out.  Either way, you should find some helpful info here.


You are probably very busy trying to run a program and work with actors.  This site is designed to be a good resource for both you and your students.  Article comments are open, but they are moderated and anything inappropriate will be modified or deleted.
